Features of Skills Library and Profiling


Skills Library focuses on the essentials. This is important in today’s world when minimal text is the preferred norm of communication. Also, the front-side of the profiling application is in-built and easy to use. 


The structure catering to all functions can form a systematic template that can be used in different conditions and by different people in the business. It shows the way of presenting the profiles of everyone in a standard format using a structured vocabulary instead of the current unstructured resumes.


Talent Management aims to cover all domains and functions. The Skills Library already includes a lot of ground in this respect, which will keep getting richer. 

Active Template:

Over time, the demand for some skills decreases while newer skills come into the trend. It is, therefore, essential that the Skills Library be continuously updated to meet the objective. We have a process in place to keep updating and enriching the library regularly. The inputs come from a team which is working exclusively in understanding and mapping the market,
