Skills define the professional attributes of Knowledge, Experience, Use of Tooling and Equipment, Behaviours, and or Leadership. For centuries we have recorded these skills as words - words on position descriptions, job ads, resumes, performance reviews, etc - but words are very difficult to quantify. For instance, we all know that ‘years of experience’ is no guarantee of broad or advanced skills, and that claims and interpretations of terms such as ‘Senior’ or ‘Experienced’ vary widely.
As such, for too long, key decisions in Talent Acquisition and Human Resources have relied on imprecise keyword matching and pure gut feel based on the ambiguity and subjectivity of free text Position Descriptions, CVs, and Performance Reviews. It is also within their subjectivity that bias thrives and diversity dies.
We use data driven decision making in all other aspects of our businesses, why not in HR?
Implementing your Skills as Data begins with self-assessments and 360 reviews of your skills against industry ‘best practice’ and internationally recognised skills and competency definitions. This is what quantifies your skills in measurable terms - as data. In turn, these Skills as Data assessments complement and inform your traditional Talent Acquisition and HR processes - because we are still dealing with real people after all.
Verification and Compliance management extends your Skills as Data via the centralised and robust document management of your Qualifications, Certifications, Registrations, Licences, Checks and Clearances, and References.
