Candidate Selection
Interview Guidance & Candidate Ranking Tools
To help guide line managers and HR recruiters in conducting effective job interviews, HRToolbench generates an interviewer's worksheet with suggested behavioral questions to ask candidates during job interviews.  Interview questions are derived from the General and Function-Specific competencies contained on the job description for which a candidate is applying.  Each candidate's job readiness is quantified based on competency ratings submitted from multiple interviewers.   Click module to learn more

Performance Management
Goal-setting, Competencies, Development and Evaluation
Supervisors define and implement employee performance goals and development objectives, as well as assess competencies, and evaluate performance based on job responsibilities automatically displayed from the employee's job description. Supervisors record goals, note progress toward goals, assess competency levels, and enter performance ratings and performance summaries.  Employees can self-assess by recording their own performance ratings and competency levels. The alignment of job description information and performance measurement criteria provides a consistent and coordinated focus for the employee. The collaborative performance planning, coaching and evaluation process also helps to engage employees and motivate achievement and competency development.   Click module to learn more
