Skills Library and Profiling engine will revolutionize the talent landscape - enabling standardization, datafication and profiling of talent.
Chennai, India (PRWEB) March 18, 2015
It’s Your Skills, the innovative leaders in talent analytics and intelligence, specializing in developing on-demand web apps to aid individuals and organizations, has launched a new solution that could take the talent landscape by storm.
The Chennai-based enterprise are pioneers in engaging talent through innovation in human resources. Their newly launched ‘Skills Library and Profiling engine’ is a web-based service that offers HR tech companies and organizations that are already utilizing human resources information systems (HRIS) a versatile and effective tool for mapping an individual’s skills. This in turn, will enable companies to identify and retain the right talent for their business needs, which could have a positive knock-on effect in terms of business performance.
HR has historically not been part of the big data discussion but this is an era where data, analytics and statistics are as important to HR as any other department or function. The challenge has been – and continues to be – having data in a standardized format. But this is where the Skills Library and Profiling engine comes in to its own.
As a web-based service, it does not disrupt existing platforms or HRIS. The API – available in both Mashape and GitHub allows for enhanced flexibility to build applications and take skills data from the Skills Library and Profiling engine. It also enables complete customization.
The first component – the Skills Library – is an exhaustive lexicon of more than 100,000 tangible functional/technical skills that covers almost every function and domain. Each is organized in a manner that enables users to more effectively map the skills of staff and potential employees in a comprehensive manner. In addition, the range of skills is continually updated both dynamically and via human intelligence ensuring new and emerging skills are not overlooked.
The Skills Profile is an advanced application allowing for the mapping of skills and proficiencies in a standardized format. This is something currently lacking in the talent space, where staff and potential new employee details are collated in a variety of formats including resumes, job descriptions and professional profiles. The Skills Profile effectively ‘sits on top’ of the Skills Library, enabling users to quickly and easily create their own skills profile through a user-friendly interface.
While the back end is a large, complex menu of skills with considerable functionality enabling organizations to create job descriptions, employee talent profiles and staff self assessment tools – the front end has been specifically developed to provide an easy user experience.
G Ramu, CEO at It’s Your Skills explained: “From our exhaustive research, we identified that most HRIS lack comprehensive skills-centric modules for effective talent management. We wanted to create something that enhanced these HRIS.”
“The Skills Library and Profiling engine can be used to create modules on skill-based job descriptions, resource deployment, talent inventory, skills analytics and more besides. It also perfectly complements existing HRIS solutions,” continued Ramu.
