Soft Skill Development

Assessments can serve as a key data source for analytics and, in that way, lend consistency to any large-scale talent initiative that depends on predictive accuracy. That’s where science meets art. The data can help companies see gaps and pinpoint talent-alignment problems that were once evasive or hidden, and EmployeeAnswers competency based learning provides the digital component to make learning dynamic and individualized to the employee.
