Hi! I would like to get inputs on the design or framework for an assessment tool to measure behavioral skills of an employee. Most of the assessment tools we have focuses more on the technical skills

Have you heard of DISC? It is a theory that dates back to the 1800s and has since been applied to the business environment to measure behaviors as they relate to the workplace. I agree with you, that there is much to know about an individual beyond technical skills and we have found that often times, we hire for skills but don't consider the importance of a candidate's behaviors.
Our particular DISC assessment is one the leaders on the market because we not only have many distinct advantages in DISC alone, but we also have additional assessment tools that provide additional views of an individual, like values and personal, or soft skills.
I would be happy to connect you with one of our coaches or consultants in your market or area, or provide you with more information personally.
Good luck with your search!
