High performing employees are the most valuable assets in business. Skillsgrid is an automated system that enables employers to better understand the individual and collective skills of their employees, the skills gaps they face as well as training and development interventions necessary for optimal workforce success. It also informs the recruitment process with a match between the applicant and the skills profile related to each job.

The Workplace: A skills-in-practice-environment.

This informs performance discussions, skills development initiatives and propensity of the individual to successfully do the practical part of the job. Multi-match  an employee to multiple skills benchmarks in the business to determine the optimal skills match to alternative jobs in the business. This information enables the business to redeploy employees. It is much better to successfully redeploy people than to replace them.

Skills gap audits

This export will indicate the skills employees lack for their respective jobs. This is critical for skills development reporting. 

Find people skilled for specific jobs in the business

The system can search and find people in the business with skills for a job even if they currently work in other divisions in the business. This function enables the business to scientifically identify people most skilled for the job where a vacancy exists.

Skills development support

The system will highlight the skills where an employee needs development for the current job. Training programs can be sourced to immediately support employees in their quest for success.

The Workplace: A skills-in-practice-environment.

Match job applicants to the Job Skills Benchmark and determine the individual’s propensity towards success in the job. This radically reduces the risk of recruitment processes based on gut feeling.
