What are the objectives of a skills assessment?

The objectives of the skills assessment are :

  • Establish a career plan adapted to the individual's professional aspirations
  • Formalize the person's skills, aptitudes, intrinsic motivations, values and competencies
  • Talk confidently and assertively about your career path, and promote your assets within your company or in any recruitment or career transition process.

Duration of skills assessment

A skills assessment program is a step-by-step process over a set period of time. Clients are free to choose the pace and time slots that suit them best, depending on their availability. On the whole, around twenty hours of work are required to carry out a skills assessment in the best possible conditions.

Who can benefit from a skills assessment?

All employees

Any employee in the public or private sector, whether an expert, manager or executive, can ask to be accompanied by one of our experts for a skills assessment. Given that the assessment is spread over several weeks, employees who wish to take advantage of this assessment during working hours must obtain prior authorization from their employer. If, on the other hand, he chooses to do so during his personal time, he is not obliged to inform his employer.

All people in professional transition or job seekers

Carrying out a skills assessment in Luxembourg enables you to take stock of your knowledge and skills, your motivations and your values. It's an essential step before embarking on a recruitment process.

The skills assessment process

The skills assessment is carried out in three phases:

Preliminary phase

The first step is to clearly define your expectations and objectives.

Investigation phase

This second stage consists of reviewing the employee's personal and professional career path. The aim is to identify the employee's knowledge, skills, motivations, values and resources.

In the same way, sources of anxiety, demoralization and discouragement are addressed, enabling the person to overcome them and move forward in their professional development.

Our skills assessment coaches are qualified to carry out this mission: using a robust and proven skills assessment methodology, questionnaires and other diagnostic tools, and of course through respectful and personalized support.

Professional project definition phase

This final stage enables us to formalize a professional project, which could be a change in professional environment, a change of profession, training to change profession, etc.

Importance of skills assessment

When you're in a profession that doesn't suit you, that's far below or above your skills, when you feel bored, the disappointment is often great and difficult to overcome so that you can change your job independently. The intervention of an external consultant is useful in getting you to question yourself and rediscover the meaning of your work.

The benefits of taking a skills assessment in Luxembourg and Switzerland are as follows:

  • Take control of your career and anticipate its development over time.
  • Better knowledge of oneself, one's personality, needs and abilities, giving the person more self-esteem and self-confidence.
  • Better awareness and acceptance of your talents and areas for development.
  • Discover or confirm your motivations and values.
  • Initiate an exciting professional project with a precise action plan.
  • Last but not least, job satisfaction, which leads to professional fulfillment.

"Isabelle was recommended to me at a pivotal moment in my professional and private life. After 12 years with a large consulting firm, I was asking myself a lot of questions. I needed to take a moment to reflect on where I'd been, and I needed the help of an independent person to help me understand the different paths I could take in the future. The Bilan de Compétences was the perfect tool for my situation. A structured and structuring approach that enabled me to identify my key skills, (re)define my objectives, and work on a career plan in line with my values and personality. Isabelle is an experienced person who brought life, structure and real added value to the approach and the process. I also appreciated the diversity of the tools (discussion time, reflection work, variety of tests). Finally, the approach also includes advice on project implementation and follow-up, which is very useful and appreciated!"
