A situational assessment allows for evaluation of an individual’s support needs in an actual work environment, as well as the ability of the work environment to “naturally” provide those work supports. These assessments help to deal with the issue of job readiness by using the actual employment and community settings.
It is a valuable tool in making sure your employee (s) have what they need. Situational assessment can also be used in the hiring process of new employees or employees that may be interviewed for a higher position. This helps managers to determine who is best suited for the job.
