Prove skills, knowledge and experience
Casmax makes sure that workers are capable and competent to do their job. It provides a four-dimensional view of an individual, looking at their core technical abilities, process experience, confidence and the recency of skill usage. The strength of Casmax is that the user affirms their own competency against a spectrum of skills set by the company.
This effectively tests how competent an individual is regarding the tasks relevant to their role before discussion, amendment and validation by their supervisor. Agreed development actions provide continuous improvement to meet future corporate needs. There are several tiers of escalation from the user to an assessor and manager. It also ensures that the assessment is based on the individual’s skills, and not their relationship with their supervisor.
Casmax makes sure that the right information gets through to the right people in the organisation.
Managers can look in granular detail at an individual, at how a team fits together, or even at aggregate skillsets across the assets, whole region, or global organisation.
With Casmax you get insight in four dimensions:
- SKILLS GAINED – Where in the process did your employee gain their skills?
- TASKS COMPLETED – Experience gained versus opportunities for development?
- CONFIDENCE AFFIRMED – Do they have a realistic perception of their competency?
- RECENTLY ACHIEVED – When was the last time they demonstrated the skills required?
Less than an hour of your time to improve your organisation forever.

How Casmax works
Casmax measures an employee’s skills by asking them to respond to a series of technical range statements. It assesses their experience in their role and ensures relevant levels of confidence in their abilities. If there are discrepancies between that individual’s experience, skills and confidence Casmax raises an alert and guides the user to address anomalies before submission to their supervisor. This avoids difficult and costly discussions with line managers and creates a more positive work environment.
Critically, it confirms when they last exercised each particular skill. This is important as it tests whether the employee is still competent to perform a task. For instance, has new technology become available or perhaps the legislative environment has changed? In either case Casmax would flag this up.
Using Casmax, companies can assess and manage competency across their entire operation. There are various levels of login. Workers are responsible for filling in their own Casmax user profiles, and an interactive dashboard highlights their progress in filling in data. A line manager assesses these user profiles, with heat map indicators identifying areas of strength and development opportunities. Senior managers can in turn log in to see an overview across a business unit, geographical location, or company-wide.
For organisations that realise their human resources are among their most important assets, Casmax works wonders. It’s not about a company making hiring or firing decisions; it's about getting the most from workers and giving them the most back. Casmax empowers individuals to take ownership of their competency profiles. For many motivated teams, job satisfaction is as much about having mastery in what they do as it is about financial reward.
By helping to create development plans for individuals, Casmax provides our clients with a positive feedback loop. For line managers, Casmax is a great mentoring and coaching tool. And it’s good for individuals throughout their career path. For recent starters, it serves as a reality check, while for mid-level employees, it represents a chance to fill in any gaps they might have and grow into new roles. And for more senior people, it showcases their skills and expertise, allowing them to benchmark themselves against others in their field and to coach future senior personnel.
With Casmax, your business can do more than just demonstrate competency: you can manage it proactively across your entire organisation.
