The company is offering the test in relation to new research that it conducted into the skills shortage. The research revealed that businesses can improve performance and mitigate the risk of the skills shortage simply by taking a good look at their most prized asset – their people.
According to SuccessFactors, eighty-three percent of employees could do more for their employers and fifty-eight percent of employees are prepared to leave if they are not developed by their employeri. They recognise they have the capacity to be developed but their employers are unaware. As a result, all those valuable skills and experience could simply walk out the door and probably straight to a competitor.
The vast majority of businesses are now using integrated workforce analytics solutions to gain important insights; for example, understanding the workforce’s capabilities and where the skills gaps are now, and in the future – these solutions give the business the power to make informed talent decisions.
Without integrated talent and analytics systems, important intelligence about your workforce is lost in a deluge of data living in disparate systems, so important talent decisions are effectively being made blind.
