This project for a major Canadian bank ran from September 1992 to October 2017. Originally started on paper later migrated to web based, we collected level 1, level 2, and level 3 training evaluations globally in English, French and Spanish as well as provided administrative and reporting portals to various levels of the organization.
Over the past 15 years we have worked with the client to develop a site that allows the testing and tracking of Employee skills in a regulated manufacturing environment. Some key features include test time limits, random questions, Manager/Employee request and approvals.
From just one to a global firm with 800 partners we have done custom 360° and upward feedback projects of all sizes.
We developed a custom system that allows employees not only the ability to manage their objectives and performance assessment but also the ability to share their personal objectives within their department and organization.
We have developed a number of custom tools over the years to assit orginzations perform year end compensation reviews and approvals. The systems allow different levels within the orginzation to set and approve the different components of their comp models.
The project involved 2000 employees world wide needing to schedule debrief sessions with 13 coaches and was designed to minimize the amount of administrative work. The system that we developed allowed coaches to enter their own time and employees to all sessions easily. Once selected the system generated and sent meeting invites to both parties, as well as reminders and other communcations. Over the 5 year run less than 2% of the booking required any additional work.
