  • Predict the probability of an individual employee's success.
  • Identify the need for new departments and positions.
  • Determine which departments or positions can be reassigned or eliminated.
  • Identify and quantify physical risks to employees in specific positions.
  • Identify and quantify factors that influence employee job satisfaction.

  • Assign and delegate responsibility for tasks and goals.
  • Optimize the enterprise's organizational structure.
