Skills - Top Rated Individuals

Prior to this release, it was difficult for users to identify experts in their organization for a particular skill for mentoring or collaboration.

With this release, when viewing the Skill Details flyout for a skill, the flyout now displays the top rated individuals within the organization for the skill.

Up to six top-rated individuals are displayed for a skill based on their skill proficiency. A link to the top-rated individual's Skill Profile is included to enable users to easily connect with the top rated individual.

A user will only appear as a top rated individual for a skill if they have a predicted proficiency above 80% for the skill. A user's predicted proficiency rating is an amalgamation of all declared ratings for the user (Self, Manager, and Peers) and the user's skill level that can be inferred from their job history and job title.

If no users meet the 80% skill proficiency, then the Top Rated Individuals section is not displayed.
