Webinar explains how assessment holds the key to digital transformation

Best practice advice to help HR teams manage - and benefit from - digital transformation across their organisations will be provided in a free 60-minute webinar on 19 September, by assessment specialist cut-e.

Called ‘Digital transformation at work: does talent assessment need to change?’, the webinar will highlight why digital transformation is a key concern for every organisation. It will explain the key competencies needed in tomorrow’s workplaces and how HR teams can measure the digital readiness of all employees and job candidates. The webinar will be presented by cut-e’s digital readiness experts Richard Justenhoven (Product Development Director), John McLaughlin (Commercial Director) and Lena Justenhoven (Senior Consultant).

“Technological innovations have disrupted the world of work and made digital transformation a CEO priority,” said Richard Justenhoven. “HR teams need to embed a new set of digital competencies into their organisations. Leaders and existing employees should be developed against these key competencies - and new staff should be recruited against them, to resolve specific talent gaps. In this webinar, we’ll explain how assessing people’s digital readiness can underpin these actions and foster a supportive culture, in which digital working can thrive.”

cut-e has created a competency model covering the key skills needed by employees to manage information, share knowledge, change priorities quickly and work more effectively. This model includes three core competencies: learnability, agility and curiosity. These are supported by eight others: drive to succeed; handling data; strategic solutioning; business acumen; virtual collaboration; digital communication; mental endurance and a coaching mindset.

“The 11 competencies in our model are not easily measured by conventional selection processes,” said Richard Justenhoven. “However, we’ll explain how the ‘digital readiness’ of employees and job candidates can be assessed using a personality questionnaire and an ‘executive attention’ ability test. By developing your leaders and employees - and recruiting - against our digital competency model, you can enhance teamwork, productivity and innovation in your organisation. This can instigate a whole new way of working and secure your organisation’s future.”

The free webinar - Digital transformation at work: does talent assessment need to change? - will be held at 11.00am CET on Wednesday 19 September. It has been specifically designed to address the changing demands on employees created by a volatile, uncertain, complex and ambiguous (VUCA) business environment.
