Assessment is an important part of determining success. Through assessment, organizations can evaluate knowledge, skill, attitude and ability, as well as measure progress. Not every assessment is formal; but whether formal or not, all should offer some indication about how to move forward and adapt strategies to achieve goals.
If your organization’s ultimate goal requires personal or cultural change, then an appraisal of the current state of affairs must be the first step in the evaluation and improvement process.
Organizations that realize employees are an integral part of brand identity have a market advantage
The knowledge-based assessments available through Human Asset Imaging® Institute provide:

In organizations, it’s imperative that all activities are driven by specific goals within predetermined timeframes, all while adhering to budget and quality parameters. Productivity is measured by the alignment of business activities with business objectives. Therefore, efficiency is key to any business’s ability to achieve success. The Human Asset Imaging® Institute’s assessment programs can help quantify productivity and identify areas of improvement.
Of the various types of evaluations used in organizations, from opinion surveys, aptitude tests, skill evaluations and the like, the HAI Institute relies most heavily on knowledge-based assessments. Though these do not directly predict performance, they accurately measure the status quo and can quantifiably represent the strengths and weaknesses of your organization.
Interpersonal skills impact every level of organizational success, including individual achievement. The ability to form relationships with others and to leave a positive impression is essential for every job in every industry. Awareness of interpersonal skills can increase employee confidence and capability, leading to greater productivity and more effective collaboration.
