Industrial Skills Assessments Get Veterans Ready to Work
A validated, scientific-based, data-driven process that accurately predicts candidate success also aligns with the hiring process using lean initiatives. Performance based “assessment machines” that identify and measure skills, competencies, and trainability prove far better than traditional written assessment tests.
As the skills shortage grows more acute each year and margin pressures mount it’s more critical than ever before to make the right hiring decision. Berry insisted, “Industrial skill assessment machines and assessment protocols are used in the veteran hiring process for the selection and evaluation of maintenance mechanics, machine operators, industrial electricians, PLC technicians, electro-mechanical personnel, and CNC operation personnel. Identifying skills prior to hire is the single most effective way to insure a quality hire and drive performance in manufacturing.”
Rapid gainful employment can be accomplished quickly. Veterans have already demonstrated remarkable discipline and skills; learning to transfer those abilities to fill the employment gap is the next step. It answers the needs of both the manufacturers and the veterans; it defines a win/win. Training is a worthwhile investment for everyone involved.
