Purchasing Skills Assessments: Get superior team results

How can CPO’s and VP’s of HR find ways to motivate procurement teams and individual team members? The answer is simple: ‘Assessments’.

One of the greatest challenges faced by CPO’s is the strategic personal development of their team in order to ensure effective use of their talent.

To properly manage this important resource, they must identify their business challenges and implement employee development and training. Employee development will help CPO’s effectively manage, motivate and empower employees, resulting in higher rates of employee productivity and retention. By using employee assessments, CPO’s are better able to take stock of a team members capabilities and help them apply these talents where most appropriate.

CPO’s can use assessments to:

  •  scope job requirements
  •  evaluate how potential employees fit jobs
  • evaluate existing employees readiness for their next role
  •  identify changes that will keep employees engaged
  • build bench strength across the entire team

By better understanding the people they employ, CPO’s can solve many of their most critical and expensive problems.

With reliable information to make HR/Talent decisions, CPO’s can successfully fit people to jobs in which they will excel, become better managers, improve service, build more effective teams and ultimately, retain their best employees.

Employee assessments will provide CPO’s with insight that could lead to higher productivity and job satisfaction throughout their team.

The information collected from assessments provides them with perspective on the current reality of their ‘bench strength’ and highlights areas of concern.

So, how can you improve the performance of your team?

By measuring the essential factors that mark the difference between success and failure in specific roles, CPO’s will be able to put the right person into every position, allowing them to utilize their talents without limitations. This leads to greater job satisfaction, improved morale and employee retention because their team is made up with a workforce of people who are highly productive, skilled and committed to doing their very best.
