  • Assign importance weightings to segment evaluation criteria.
  • Enter all segments under consideration and answer a series of questions for each.
  • View the results of the Segment Importance Evaluation and compare roles with a more detailed breakdown of scores.
  • Outline the skills your organization has defined as critical.
  • List the employees being examined and document which skills each possesses to inform which department or function each employee can be transferred to.
  • Chose the criteria you want to rate employees on and rank employees against the criteria to determine a Final Score for each employee.
  • Determine the top three responsibilities and related skills for each employee.

Use this tool to objectively assess employee layoff decisions.
