Skills Mapping FAQs 2022
What is skills mapping?
Skills or competency mapping is a process to clearly identify the granular skills taxonomy of your organization and then understand the relationships between roles, teams, work, and people. When this is complete, you can then perform a skills assessment process based on a unified rating scale that everyone in your organization can understand.
How can you put skills mapping into practice?
There are many intricacies to mapping the skills of your organization, but the main steps cover identifying and evaluating skills and collecting and analyzing the data, with consistent touchpoints to keep the data fresh and relevant.
Can skills mapping help with retention?
Yes, skills mapping is an integral part to talent retention. By building these relationships, an individual, manager and employer can:
- Better understand the current skills of a person and work to close skill gaps, or allocate work based on skill strengths
- Better understand the transitional skills of a person, specific teams and the changing nature of the organization.
- Better understand the future skill requirements and interests of a person and actively engage and work to build genuine career pathways and enable internal mobility.
By harnessing skills mapping in its entirety you are giving a voice to employees, and focusing on a better employee experience.
What is the difference between a skills matrix and competency mapping?
Skill levels demonstrate the expertise in a given skill or skill set, while competency relates to the ability to actually perform a task or action usually in the form of a specific role.
A skills matrix is simply the act of visually reporting on the skill levels of an individual, team, role or organization as a whole. While competency mapping is more the act of building the underlying data structure or schema to ensure more trustworthy, actionable data.
Competency can also be visualized in the form of a matrix, and when embracing skills management software, all of these insights can be acted on in a scalable and real time way.
