E. Matzkevich

Head of HR Department Gazprom neft

Since 2011, Gasprom neft has worked with BSSL on employee assessment projects.

We utilized BSSL’s web-based assessment portal for our annual employee performance and potential assessments for both corporate and subsidiary organizations. More than 10,000 employees had been assessed to date.

We appreciate our partnership with BSSL and intend to continue working together on future employee assessment projects.

A. Vodyanoy

Head of HR research center, Sberbank

BSSL’s ergonomic infographics and harmoniously designed reports elevate BSSL above its competitors.

It is also important to mention the robust load capacity of the system, allowing to easily study groups of hundreds of employees. Any organizational diagnostics are useless unless they are actionable by the management and the results are shared with the participants. BSSL solves for both problems by offering transparent logical structure and visual business graphics that effectively support an informed decision making process for managers of all levels. The built in communications features allow to easily generate and share reports with the assessment participants.

E. Khokhlova

Head of evaluation and staff development department, VTB 24

We came across BSSL at HR conference in 2010 and now, a year later, we are happy to share our experience of successful implementation of several evaluation projects. Our BSSL colleagues helped us develop a questionnaire, significantly customized reports and provided all around support with the administration of the assessment projects.

We were pleasantly surprised with BSSL’s customer service approach, flexibility and customer orientation – it is gratifying to work with professionals who are truly interested in delivering results that fully address their customers’ needs.

Нас приятно удивил подход компании к работе с клиентом, их гибкость и клиентоориентированность — приятно работать с профессионалами, которые искренне заинтересованы в том, чтобы результат работы максимально удовлетворял потребностям клиентов.

We are looking forward to future fruitful cooperation with the BSSL team and wishing them new customers.
A special thank you goes to Alexander Larionov for his responsiveness and efficiency.

We empower organizational change

It all started in 2009, when we realized that most employee evaluation solutions on the market focused on the 360° evaluation, producing partial and often biased results. At the same time we discovered the power of the Social Network Analysis (SNA) for business purposes that took into the consideration not only individual employees’ skills but also interactions among employees and teams within an organization.

Azimuth 2.0 is a modern online employee evaluation platform that takes a different approach to the employee evaluation as compared to the traditional 360° assessments. By integrating the 360° into the larger analysis of an organization’s social network, we help companies discover key employees, identify internal communication barriers, optimize organizational structure and find the right place for every employee.

Through these years, we have gained trust of Russian and American companies. Our mission is to revolutionize employee management process by listening and observing instead of questioning, and by studying instead of evaluating.
