Every worker needs certain basic skills to succeed in the workplace. The Employability Skills Inventory (ESI) helps individuals identify the workplace skills they possess and those that they need to develop more fully.
This assessment is based on the required knowledge, skills, and abilities outlined by the Secretary's Commission on Achieving Necessary Skills (SCANS) from the US Department of Labor. Knowing and improving on these skills is essential to career success.
The ESI feeds into the following scales:
Select the format that works best for your clients' or students' needs. The print version is ideal for in-person meetings and workshops and can be a helpful reference tool during one-on-one discussions.
The online version offers automated scoring and allows individuals to complete the assessment at home at their convenience. Results are immediately saved and provided to administrators. This option is ideal for serving or advising individuals who are unable to meet face-to-face.
