Employee Assessments
Evaluating and assessing your employees is vital to maintaining a high-performing team. Accurate assessment can help your company determine the strengths and weaknesses of new employees. This valuable insight not only can appropriately match an employee's skill to the right job, but also can determine what additional training may be required. The Precision Metalforming Association (PMA) offers several products to help you accurately assess the skills and aptitudes of your employees to make sure that all new hires are set up for success.
