Tracking Your Critical Skills Progress
Without a structured skill tracking system, organizations struggle to identify skill gaps, leading to inefficient resource allocation, project delays, and operational setbacks. Additionally, the absence of personalized learning paths hampers employees' professional growth.
This feature offers a robust tracking system for the proficiency of an employee’s critical skills over time, which helps employees in their professional journey, facilitates manager evaluation and coaching, and links employees to opportunities within the organization.
