Assessments provide the data for individuals to understand themselves more deeply, much faster; they also help people understand others. Assessments help people become more self aware providing them with insights into themselves.  Managers take approximately 6 months to understand new employees, but assessments reduce that time making them efficient faster.  

"We hire people for their technical skills...
 but fire them for their behavioural faults."

5. 360 Assessment

The individual also has a chance to respond to self-assessment.  The customizable online 360 Report allows each individual to understand how their effectiveness as an employee, coworker, or team member is viewed by others.  Comments are also provided by the raters about the recipient’s key strengths and areas of development that would make the recipient more effective in their role.
