Multiple Competency Assessment Surveys

The Challenge

Client wanted to assess competencies of several hundred employees employees. But the employees were at several administrative levels from Non-Supervisory to Executive.

The Result

Multiple competency assessment questionnaires.

Here is an example of 4 competency assessment questionnaires:

  1. Non-Supervisory
  2. Supervisors
  3. Managers
  4. Executives
Not all managers have the same responsibilities. So why use just one questionnaire for your 360 feedback?
Multiple questionnaires for multiple levels of managers may yeild more responsive results.

How are the questionnaires displayed? How does the software know which questionniare to display for which administrator?

The employees receiving feedback are defined in an employee database that stores relevant employee information such as
location, job title, job level, and other characteristics. When a feedback assignment is created between one
employee and another, the software looks at the job characteristics of the person receiving the feedback. If they
are a manager, then the 'manager' form will be used. If they are an executive then the 'executive' form will be used.
The form used will depend on the job characteristics of the person receiving the feedback. This all happens transparent to the person providing the feedback. They will simply complete the questionnaire form presented to them by the software.
