The value of Employee Assessments as a marketing tool? If you as a consultant agree that employee engagement is a powerful predictor for HR and performance outcomes, wouldn’t you like to provide your client employee assessments that reliably identify specific irregularities or opportunities?
Designed correctly, an assessment experience should provide a tipping-point for your prospective client to acknowledge a need, enabling you to introduce solutions that will impact their performance, control, or work-life balance.
Employee assessments typically collect responses or reactions to statements, and ranks them to other responses based on their importance and deviation from a baseline. Providing the same assessments to a client over time allows the consultant an important baseline to measure trends within an individual company.

The employee assessment and your analysis should expose disparities, deficiencies, or opportunities, enabling you to offer solutions to your client and position you as a strategic partner in achieving performance outcomes.
