Workforce Assessments

Delivering a High-Performing Workforce

One of the biggest business challenges is the effective acquisition and management of human capital talent. The success of Talent Management is largely dependent on effective Talent Acquisition. Hiring people with the right skills, at the right time, and at the right cost through an effective and efficient selection process creates high ROI value for the recruiting process as well the employment lifecycle of the new hire.

Companies often expend valuable resources identifying, assessing, interviewing, and selecting job applicants. Our efficient Workforce Assessment tools help clients pre-select viable job applicants and reduce the costs of the typical hiring process. They are not designed to replace your recruiting and selection processes, but rather to augment these processes and increase the efficiency of a good client-based hiring system.

Our Workforce Assessments are also used by our clients for incumbent worker assessment, which helps maximize the client’s employee training ROI through targeted job-skill assessments. Among a number of application options, is the identification of the skill requirements of your specific jobs.

Through our systematic job analysis capability, NOVA Workforce is able to determine the skills required by your specific job classifications. NOVA Workforce is then able to help clients bridge the gaps between their job requirements and their incumbent worker skill sets.

Here is how two of our clients have benefited from NOVA's Workforce Development:
