Get started with SkillBuilder.
Trusted to develop some of the world’s most skilled workforces.
Our Assessment-Building Process:
1. Analyze Job
Complete a detailed job analysis using current job analysis work and your current “skill” documents as a starting point. What competencies are critical to safe and successful job performance?
2. Rate Competence
Using the job analysis results, determine the level of assurance you need for each competency. You need a high level of assurance that the people doing the most safety-sensitive tasks are absolutely competent.
3. Measure Criticalness of Tasks
Build (or select) competency measures at the level of accuracy you desire. Generally, assessments can be ranked from most to least accurate.
4. Conduct Assessments
Use the SkillBuilder program with composite scoring across all measures to identify individual and group competencies in need of further development. SkillBuilder serves as both the testing and reporting platform.
5. Close Gaps
Close skill gaps through appropriate training (improve workers’ skills), scheduling (make sure a competent worker is always present), selection (hire highly-competent workers), or job design (remove the need for competency through automation or other means).
6. Monitor and Improve
Monitor and improve competency assurance program on an ongoing basis.
The competency assurance program can be updated as job requirements change.
SkillBuilder harnesses a proven technology framework, without the disadvantages of off-the-shelf solutions that never quite fit.
When a seven-location petrochemical company wanted to build a competency assurance program that wasn’t linked to proprietary training solutions, they turned to SkillBuilder. By working with local job experts, we were able to create a core program for their workforce. Then, we added site-by-site modifications to account for important differences across the organization.
