Lessons Learnt from Automating Assessments

Although the concept of automation has been around for quite some time, there are challenges with regard to the practical implementation of automation within an assessment team.

Most specialists form enduring patterns of completing tasks, and assessment professionals are no exception. Adapting to new processes, even if they are more streamlined and effective, can be challenging.

In our experience with helping our clients automate their assessment processes, we’ve seen initial fears regarding automation melt away in the face of massive time-savings and an enhancement of the role of assessment specialist. It may be somewhat scary to automate, but the benefits always outweigh the cost!

Nonetheless, trust has to be established around automation and people need to become mentally ready for automating processes that used to be completely manual. In our work with clients, we take care to spend time with assessment specialists, helping them to realise the full benefits of automation.

The road to automation of assessments has become a far easier and effective one to walk for assessment professionals.

In our work with clients, we’ve seen immense benefits in automating assessment processes through our digital platform, RoleFit. Perhaps the key advantage of automating your assessment practices is the effect it will have on the people within your organization who are tasked with delivering assessments.

By automating dreary and time-consuming tasks, they are freed up to deliver real value to the organization, to use their professional training to maximum effect, and to become partners to internal clients rather than glorified administrators.
