Aside from taking the Quay Assessment, an organization can begin the journey to a Safe Harbor by piloting a Knowledge Assessment. Knowledge assessments are a necessary tool in order for organizations to understand the level of awareness and risk within their organization. Much like a proof of concept, knowledge assessments show decision makers, through empirical data, how far their employees are from understanding these crucial concepts. In order to sample the level of understaning in relation to job title and department within the organization, the company may elect to administer the Knowledge Assessment to the executives, a control group of employees, or some variation thereof.
The Quay Method™ recommends that an organization begin a knowledge assessment with 5% of their total employee base, at least six different departments, and at least three different job descriptions. After the results are analyzed, decision makers select a variation of The Quay eLearning Modules, elect to create Custom eLearning Modules, or some variation of the two.
