Factors Impacting upon the Performance of Workplace Assessors: A Case Study
Armstrong, Susanne
International Journal of Training Research, v5 n1 p1-20 2007
This paper reports on the findings of a research project that elicits the main factors impacting on the performance of workplace assessors in the oil and gas industry. The purpose of the paper is to reveal the significance of the role of workplace assessors and the subsequent impact upon workforce engagement. One model of employee competency assessment currently utilised in the Australian workplace, is performed by suitable employees who have been identified and trained as internal workplace assessors. This qualitative action research project aimed to discover the scope of the internal workplace assessor role beyond the primary focus of technical skills assessment. The selected cohorts for this project were employed in the upstream oil and gas industry working in a variety of geographically isolated locations. Through questionnaires, face-to-face interviews and focus groups, the data gathered have been utilised to gain further insight into the role of the internal workplace assessor in the oil and gas industry by gathering perceptions from the assessors and of those currently being assessed.
