How SkillsDB Works

Everything you’d expect of a great talent development tool, and more.

It’s never been simpler to customize, implement, and administer your skills management software. SkillsDB provides a versatile software system to evaluate the competency levels of current and new staff, match training resources, and speed up the growth of your workforce.

Employees Fill Out Their Own Skills Matrices
A skills tracker that creates truly predictive data is a priceless decision-making tool. This is exactly what makes SkillsDB a key differentiator for every organization. Our unique, web-based assessment system allows both employees and managers to easily score employee skillsets. Our skillset tracking is truly the “next generation” of applying total quality administration to skills management.

Managers Score Their Employees
Managers can view/update/review employee’s skill scores and attributes, for employees assigned to them. Employees never see the score assigned to them by a manager. When printed out, this report makes for an excellent discussion between employees and managers during performance reviews.

The Magic: Recommended Learning Plans
Like magic, SkillsDB generates recommended learning plans for every employee based on their job roles, skills, scores and certifications. Using Job Role as an example, if an employee has ‘some training’ in B2B marketing, but their job role requires ‘expert’ level in this skill, the LPS searches the system for a course that will take them to expert level and recommends it to the employee or manager. This becomes the basis for your employee’s individual development plans.

SkillsDB uses an employee’s current skill set and/or job role skills scores, then compares it to the learning catalog skills and scores. It then creates a set of recommended learning activities. These are directly tied to the employee’s current and needed skill set for their job providing a personalized learning pathway for each employee.

Employee and Managers: Creating Learning & Individual Development Plans
From the training displayed under Recommended Learning Plans, an employee or manager can pull courses into the employee’s actual Learning Plan. And when they do, they get a set of tools to track their progress as they go through these courses.

You can also create custom learning plans to track other learning activities. For example, if employee John is assigned to work with employee Smith who is an expert in creating B2B marketing plans, then employee John can create a Learning Plan to track all aspects of how far along he is with his on-the-job training.

With the SkillsDB Learning Plan System, employees will have every tool they need to succeed, improving on the job success.
