Boost employee productivity and efficiency

Genesys Skillls Assessor

Take the guesswork out of improving employee engagement

Knowing what skills your employees possess is vital to providing consistent, efficient and effective service. Proactively identifying critical capabilities and addressing gaps in relevant
skillsets can be the essential difference between a great experience—turning a customer to a brand advocate—and a poor experience—driving them to a competitor and damaging the reputation of your business and your bottom line.

Many businesses try to identify skills gaps through traditional quality assurance programs, but these efforts can be undermined by incomplete information. It can be difficult to integrate the performance-related data from systems such as quality management, CRM or HR. With incomplete or inaccurate information, it’s a challenge to create comprehensive profiles of employee capabilities and potential. This negatively affects employee performance, successful interactions and work-routing strategies. Without accurate assessments, identifying and resolving skills gaps is guesswork. You can easily make the costly mistake of using your resources inefficiently and providing far more, or far less, training than your employees actually need.

This dangerous combination of factors—poor identification of capabilities, inability to pinpoint and address knowledge gaps properly, and inability to automatically update information about employee skills for accurate skills-based routing—leads to disappointing customer experiences.

Build a blueprint to manage skills gaps and improve customer experience

Genesys Skills Assessor delivers the capabilities to help your team provide experiences that keep your customers coming back. It enables you to identify successful behaviors and automatically correlate desired business performance and key metrics with the skills best suited to achieve those results. This gives you the ability to develop “employee engagement blueprints” that specifically identify the skills, characteristics and profiles of top performers, and provide an understanding of the training needed for employees with skills and performance gaps. You can then use these blueprints to provide targeted, relevant training to strengthen the performance of all your employees and, ultimately, to improve the experience your customers have with your business.

A leading internet service provider wanted to increase sales and looked to the Genesys Skills Assessor. They created two groups of equally skilled agents with similar sales results. One group used Genesys Skills Assessor; the other group did not. The result was that agents in the Genesys Skills Assessor group sold over 100% more than the agents who didn’t for the same product in the same time period.
