Skills Profile & Capabilities Library (Open Beta) - Overview

This functionality is available in Stage and Pilot portals with the October '20 Release. It is not available in Production portals.

With the Capabilities Library and Skills Profile:

  • Organizations have access to over 53,000 skills that they may be used in their portal.
  • Cornerstone's AI-powered Skills Graph automatically imports skills into the Capabilities Library. (Administrators have the ability to screen skills before they are published for employees to see.)
  • Cornerstone's AI-powered Skills Graph automatically associates relevant skills to each employee job title using data collected from over 250 million profiles worldwide, across all industries and organization sizes.
  • Employees can declare which skills they currently have, which skills they want to further develop, and which ones they would like to ignore. (Employees are given a jump start with automatically suggested skills they can declare and the ability to view full skill descriptions.)
  • Employees can also self-rate their proficiency, interest, and enjoyment for specific skills, and receive skill proficiency ratings from their peers.
  • Organizations can continue to use their internally defined skills and competencies in addition to the skills from Cornerstone's Skills Graph.
  • Organizations should experience a faster implementation time to get their capabilities library up and running.

Important: The Capabilities and Skills Profile functionality is currently in an Open Beta status.

The next scheduled update of this documentation is scheduled for the February 2021 release.
