How to Measure Employee Capabilities

1. Read Their Resume thoroughly:-

When you hire anyone, they come to you either with a resume or a cover letter. The same documents are kept stored in an employee record file and thus if you have recently joined this office, you can ask the peon to bring that file on your table. Go through each and every employee’s resume and soon you will come to know about the “Mentioned Strengths” of each and every employee.

2. Keep Organizing Training and Evaluation Exams for Them:-

When you go through the resumes, you will be able to know what sorts of skills and qualities your employees have as a surplus in them. You can organize training and evaluation exams in order to confirm if they are true with their mention of capabilities or not.

3. Adjudge Place Not On the Base of Degree but Skill:-

When we are talking about measuring the employee capabilities, we have to adjudge the place of an employee not on the basis of his degree or qualification, but on the basis of his skills. A degree can be purchased even from a private institution faking that someone is capable, but the exact capability is determined not by degree but by skills of a particular person.

4. Environment of Competition and Perks:-

Train your employees and keep organizing such training sessions every year for the capable employees. Encourage an environment of competition and perks for each of them so as to make them aware that the harder they work for your firm, the easier it will get for them to have a promotion.

5. Promotion According To Strength:-

Here I remembered about a line that even my employer used to say “Evaluating and measuring employee capabilities means to promote them according to their strength, but a promotion never means that the employer can’t demote them again and instead the approach should be really free and fair. The one who works hard will soon meet an increment and promotion, but if he does not maintains the level of this hard work, the company can soon demote him back as well.

6.  Equal Treatment for All:-

All the employees should get an equal treatment and you should not let anyone to be treated as a special case amongst them. When all the above mentioned steps get applied in a particular firm, the environment of competition gets enhanced and they work with their will as well as force and hard work. This process soon proves to evaluate each and every employee’s capabilities and you can get the best out of them.
