Hi there 🙂
I’m Steve the founder of Skills DB Pro.
I had been focused on the implementation of technology solutions to solve business problems for over 25 years, working with organizations ranging from telecommunications to health care.
Then purely by accident in 2008 I was asked to build a system to manage skills for a construction company. So I built an Access version of a Skills Database and kept the rights. There was really nothing out there like this. I then made an install-able desktop version and sold a couple a month as a sideline business creating enough money for a few months in Thailand or Argentina each year.
Then I got a call from Ernst & Young asking if I had a web based version, then UPS called, well by the fourth call like that I did have a web based version. So here we are.
My team and I have spent the last 10 years talking with team leads, project managers, HR professionals, and VP’s on how to best manage their employees talents, competencies, and trainings. This blog is to communicate what we have learned from talking with 100’s of professionals and how we have helped them create their Talent Management Road Map.
