How to conduct certification
Certification is a systematic assessment of the conformity of professional and personal qualities, the qualification level of a particular employee to their position. Certification allows you to analyze the shortcomings in the work of employees that hinder a more successful business development. Let's try to figure out how to properly conduct certification.
The certification of ordinary workers does not require any complicated procedures. Certification of managers requires more sophisticated assessment systems and completely different criteria. One of the most famous is the “360 degrees” method, when a manager is evaluated on a ten-point scale and 6 parameters: communication and organizational skills, time management, sense of purpose, ability to counteract conflicts in a team, and ability to manage personnel. It is also necessary to take into account the results of the work of subordinates of this manager.
Usually the special commission with the chairman at the head carries out certification. New employees (with work experience up to one year), pregnant women or women who have children up to three years are not subject to certification by law.
Certification should be conducted no more than once a year and consist of three stages: preparatory, certification and final.
During the preparatory period, the necessary methodologies, a program and a list of those competencies for employees to be certified are developed. Employees need to know by what criteria they will be evaluated. At this stage, prepare all the necessary documentation (magazines. Forms, tickets, etc.). At the same time, the attestation commission and its chairman are approved.
In the second period, certification activities are held. It is desirable in order to conduct certification to involve independent experts. It is important not to forget to fill out all the necessary documents and prepare materials for the report.
At the final stage are summed up. During this period, a meeting of the attestation commission. It approves the results, analyzes them, makes recommendations when working with employees, and makes organizational decisions. Depending on the results of employee certification, he may be promoted, he may be paid a salary or rewarded. In case of negative results, an employee may be dismissed.
In general, it should be summarized that certification is a very important component of effective enterprise management, therefore, it should be treated carefully and seriously.
