Organisations must continually search for ways to make the whole more valuable than the sum of its parts. Although the recession has technically ended, the downturn lingers on, with fewer employees expected to produce the same output as when fully staffed. What gets employers through these challenging times is discipline, not panic or trust in fate. Human resource and strategic workforce management solutions can align your business by helping you recruit, develop, retain, engage, and promote the best employees.
Every job or position has requirements that go beyond the customary job description. When an employee's job duties conflict with their natural talent and skills, they suffer from tension and stress that can lead to organisational conflict and employee behavioral problems.

Regularly and Consistently Revalidated
Employee assessments are validated regularly and for good reason—because assessments can't be allowed to get old. Assessments are made up of words and the meanings of words change, sometimes quite rapidly! Ever heard the phrase “That’s so five minutes ago?” What’s true for fashion can be just as relevant for language, especially in an age of texting and short-hand messaging. When meanings change, it can affect how people respond to questions in an employee assessment, invalidating the question. If enough questions change, the entire assessment may become invalid.
