Sample CPT Employer Diagnostic Tool

MSSC offers a “Diagnostic Tool for Employers” enabling a company to benchmark its material handling and distribution workers against national averages on the Key Work Activities within each of the standards-based MSSC CLA and CLT Assessments. Due to legal requirements to protect the scores of individual workers, MSSC prepares this report on the basis of 10 or more workers per modular assessment. This tool is an authoritative, independent reference point for a company to determine the skills and knowledge strengths and weaknesses of its workforce in the core competencies of production and to set training priorities.
