There are 8 common components of a workforce plan that benefit from the objective data provided by workforce assessments: recruiting, retention, succession planning, performance management, career pathing, turnover, redeployment, and leadership development. Keep reading to see how each of these is benefited by workforce assessment data.

Performance management – Measure candidates’ and employees’ strengths and weaknesses to decide future action to be taken on performance.
