Selection Criteria

These are the questions used to assess and compare employee skills during the redundancy process.

They define important skills and expertise you need to keep. Using the right selection criteria means you'll retain the best people with the right skills for the future of your business.

What do important criteria look like?

Research indicates the most relevant selection criteria include:

  • question meaning and attainment levels
  • importance weightings and role applicability
  • transparent scoring framework
  • fair assessment, comparison and selection

That's why you need to ensure you retain best employees with the right skills, expertise and behaviour working for you. The most effective way of identifying these key attributes is by using selection criteria questions.

Redundancy Selection Scorecard

Using a selection criteria points system provides clarity to all those involved in the redundancy process about:

  • skills your business would like to keep
  • what redundancy selection criteria is being used
  • how staff will be scored against the criteria
  • method used to select redundant staff
  • notifying staff of your redundancy decision

A selection criteria points system should include a question, explanation, answer options and points awarded. Each question should define a skill, quality or expertise you would like to keep and which are required in the role. This selection criteria points system is the most effective way to assess team members, managers and leaders.
