The Universal Language for Talent Management

Competency Management

Competency Management Software

TalentGuard’s Competency Manager is a cloud solution that enables companies to:

  • Access thousands of standardized work skills that unify employee behaviors, functional experiences, qualifications and work-style preferences.
  • Enable employees to showcase their skills, experiences, certifications, achievements, aspirations and work history.
  • View skills or jobs in demand internally and identify gaps for professional development.
  • Enhance job profiles by crowdsourcing employee suggestions of new skills and ranking the importance of existing ones.
  • Assess, rank and verify skills by coworkers based on real-world work interactions.
  • Gain insight into an employee’s cultural and job fit through social reviews and assessments.

TalentGuard’s Approach

TalentGuard believes that every successful talent management initiative begins with the right industry-specific competency framework. TalentGuard offers four categories of competencies including core (impact to culture and values), leadership (impact to strategic management skills), functional (impact job families) and technical (impact to the specific job role).

With TalentGuard’s Competency Manager, your HR team can create and access a curated database of skills and job roles. The software allows you to associate accelerators with competencies such as learning resources, interview questions, development goals, and coaching tips. Your company can import 3rd party competencies from companies such as IBM and HRSG, enforce standardization and automatically manage governance and version control.

Competency Management Defined

Competencies are a combination of knowledge, skills and abilities that describe demonstrable indicators of proficiency. They define, in behavioral terms, the skills and experiences people needed to drive the business.
