Skills Mapping FAQs

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.

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.

Yes, skills mapping is an integral part to talent retention. By building these relationships, an individual, manager and employer can: 

  1. Better understand the current skills of a person and work to close skill gaps, or allocate work based on skill strengths
  2. Better understand the transitional skills of a person, specific teams and the changing nature of the organization. 
  3. 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.
