Skills Profile - Compare Skills

The Compare Skills page enables managers and users a central view of all the user's skill ratings. Managers can use this information as a conversation starter and guide around skills when having development conversations with their employees, and users can use this information for self-reflection and calibration.

Compare Skills displays the latest ratings from multiple dimensions/sources while respecting visibility settings for ratings.

The Compare Skills page is only available to users if enabled by the system administrator in Skills Profile Preferences. See Skills Profile Preferences.

To access the Skills Profile page, go to Home > Universal Profile. Then, select the Skills tab. Within the Skill menu, select the Compare Skills option. This option is also available within the three-dot menu in the Your Skills section. This option is only available when viewing the Skills Profile for yourself or for a direct report.

To access another user's Universal Profile - Bio page, select the user's photograph from any page within Universal Profile or from Global Search. From there, you can access the user's Skills Profile page by clicking the Skills tab.

Sort Ratings

The following sort options are available for the Skills display:

  • Overall - This displays skills with the highest overall self-ratings at the top of the list.
  • Strengths - This displays skills with the highest proficiency and enjoyment at the top of the list.
  • Emerging Skills - This displays skills with high interest in developing but lower proficiency at the top of the list.
  • Misaligned Proficiency - This displays skills with the greatest to least difference between self-ratings and ratings from others, especially managers.
  • Highest Proficiency - This displays skills with the highest to lowest proficiency rating. This is based on the self ratings.
  • Highest Interest - This displays skills with the highest to lowest interest rating.
  • Highest Enjoyment - This displays skills with the highest to lowest enjoyment rating.

Note: If a portal does not use certain dimensions, such as Interest or Enjoyment, the Sorts that use those dimensions are not shown.
