Observation Checklist: Observe, Measure Competencies and Performance on the Job, in Real Time

For many energy and utilities professionals there are instances when fulfillment of required competencies—such as health, safety and environmental—cannot be measured on a typical rating scale or as part of an annual review. Cornerstone’s innovative Observation Checklist feature lets you systematically assess and monitor employee skills and performance while employees are doing their jobs.

Cornerstone’s Observation Checklist guides you through assigning validators or verifiers to assess competence or successful completion of tasks as employees in the field.

With the Observation Checklist you can:

  • Give your verifiers, validators or preceptors easy access to observation checklists, replacing inefficient paper-based processes
  • Ensure that regulatory reporting is accurate and timely

  • Specifically define observation ratings and methods
