The Entegrys Focus SuiteTM Tools

Three valid and defensible competency feedback tools.

A self-assessment tool for career development. It offers insight into an individual’s strengths, development needs and suitability for a specific job.

A self-and-manager assessment tool to stimulate focused, productive performance discussions between managers and their staff.

Our most powerful offering, 360 FocusTM is a multi-rater competency assessment tool to gather and compare feedback from key stakeholders—self, managers, peers, direct reports and even clients.

Two flexible, value-add tools for Enterprise Plan clients.

The more precisely you can define the critical competencies for key roles in your organization, the better you will be able to hire and train for those roles, saving you both time and money. The Role Focus™ tool enables Enterprise Plan subscribers to easily engage any number of stakeholders in identifying the critical competencies for key roles.more info

Using the Team 360 Focus™ tool, we can compile a report of the 360 Focus™ results for your entire team. The report gives you a clear picture of how well the team is performing. Use it to compare strengths and development needs of individuals to the team’s average. Or, identify and track trends and organizational concerns.

Two high performance engines to power the Focus SuiteTM tools.

The Entegrys Competency Dictionary

The Entegrys Job Profile Library

Our competency dictionary has been proven and enhanced over time with a wide variety of organizations in such diverse sectors as financial, scientific, technology, government, the arts and not-for-profit.

Each competency in the Entegrys Competency Dictionary is defined over four increasing levels of complexity. As a result, multiple single-level competencies can be encompassed within any one Entegrys competency. A decision matrix is used to create consistency from level to level and between competencies. This rigor and consistency facilitate sound quantitative ratings and enable a direct numerical comparison from one team member to another.

A job profile identifies the six to ten competencies most critical for effective performance in that job, as well as the desired level of complexity for each competency.

Built from the Entegrys Competency Dictionary, the ever-expanding Entegrys Job Profile Library represents a wide range of roles and careers. Simply choose the one that mirrors your requirements most closely. With an Enterprise Plan, you can add your own customized job profiles to reflect you unique culture and specific jobs.

Quality Assured

Three levels of statistical validation are available to flag inconsistent ratings or to exclude responses from outliers.

A quality focus is maintained through to the final report. The result is a clear, professional report that can be used to capture the attention of recruiters, to focus performance discussions and to inform a professional development strategy.

Three levels of statistical validation on 360 FocusTM reports

1

The inter-rater Agreement Measure indicates the confidence the user can have that the ratings accurately reflect what they are designed to measure. In general, the higher the agreement measure, the less likelihood of either randomness or inconsistency in the ratings.
2

The Average Sum Validity Check flags assessor responses with statistically high or low ratings relative to other responses. Outlier responses can be excluded from the report if desired. Note: This feature is only available to Enterprise Plan subscribers.
3

The Standard Deviation Validity Check compares the variations in assessor ratings for the individual being assessed. Too high or low a variation in ratings relative to other assessors is likely to indicate a failure to differentiate observed behaviour objectively. Note: This feature is only available to Enterprise Plan subscribers.

The Entegrys FocusTM Reports

The Focus™ feedback reports provide a rich source of information for both management and the individual being assessed. For example, they:

  • Include both numerical and graphical depictions of average ratings to clearly identify the individual’s development relative to the desired complexity levels in the job profile.
  • Indicate the individual’s readiness for more senior positions by showing ratings even for levels beyond those required for this position.
  • Include standard interpretation notes and four unique data reporting sections, i.e. Performance Summary, Comparative View*, Key Behaviour Details*, and Assessor Comments. Together, they paint a comprehensive picture of the individual’s strengths and development needs.
    *Available in the Performance and 360 Focus™ reports.

Entegrys 360 Focus™ reports reveal how consistently an employee has demonstrated productive behaviours in their current and previous jobs.
