Skills transparency

What is skills transparency?

Skills transparency allows HR to overview available skillsets in the organization and make informed HR decisions based on that data.

Why is skills transparency needed in an organization?

When an organization incorporates skills transparency with their employees, they tend to be more successful in several areas, demonstrating increased employee engagement, a stronger company culture, and transparency that fosters a work environment in which employees can communicate freely.

How does skills transparency lead to employees’ career progression?

Skills transparency is practiced by agreeing on what skills and competencies are available and needed in every job. Employees and managers across the company have clear visibility into career progression. Focusing on competencies minimizes biases so employees can be confident in their career progression. This kind of career visibility keeps employees engaged, motivated, and eager to move forward within the company.
