Skills assessment is the act of measuring someone’s granular skill set based on a common unified rating scale so that everyone has a shared understanding of competency.  

A proven methodology to measurement is the Skills Base structured subjective approach™  which suggests a self-assessment and supervisor assessment is undertaken to create a clear picture of skill gaps, strengths and weaknesses.

Many organizations choose to do skills assessments manually or via spreadsheets but this often results in a lack of unified data, transparency, and opportunity for employees and employers alike. Skills Assessment Software puts trust into the underlying data, that can scale to a team of ten, or an organization of ten thousand people. 

With a single source of truth, employees, managers and anyone in the team can act on this data in a meaningful way.

The process of Skills assessment helps identify an individual’s expertise or opportunities for growth and development. It also gives more ownership and power to the employee, enabling greater collaboration and trust in a manager or leader to ensure growth in a direction that supports career goals and the team needs.

By assessing skill and competency a clear picture on skill gaps, skills strengths and skill opportunities can be identified. This fundamental data and insights can then be used to enrich decisions across an organization’s talent strategy to acquire, develop, allocate and retain people with the right skills. 

By harnessing skills assessment data, employers can also improve the employee experience, providing genuine career growth opportunities.
