The ICT manager at an English Police H.Q. urgently needed to use eSkill. He was required to reduce the number of staff in his department. He had identified that a critical element of the process was to accurately identify the skill levels of every member of his team, he was particularly keen to ensure those team members who had a strong knowledge of niche solutions such as NPR software, (Number Plate Recognition). His concern was that using a last-in / first-out approach. would have a harmful effect in the long term
The ICT manager had established that eSkill had the range of subjects he needed, but that also that it had a structure with the flexibility to configure the tests in precisely the way he required. A key element was also that he would be able to create questions for bespoke Police software. The tests comprised were targeted at the appropriate skill levels needed for the specific roles and questions were a combination of multiple-choice, free-response and true/false, selected from both the eSkill library and bespoke ones created by this client.

The current global health crisis is having an impact on economic activity and, for some sectors, the need to review costs has moved to the top of the priority list. And inevitably, labour costs will come under scrutiny. In some cases, it may involve companies making certain positions redundant which creates the dilemma of who to keep. This process has to be done with fairness and with an objective review of which members of staff have the skills that you need most in the current trading climate.
There is no easy way to do this, but there is a transparent and objective approach. eSkill UK Tests used by businesses in the past who have faced this scenario, and you can see a great case study here of how a particular project delivered against a tight schedule, less than three weeks from start to finish.
