In a previous blog post Talent Show I covered the importance of organizations understanding and leveraging the skills and capabilities of their workforce. I won’t repeat this here so please take a look if you want to know more about the benefits of this.
In this post I’d like to share with you what we’ve been implementing into our OpusView platform that helps address the challenges discussed within that article.
Having the right skills and competencies within an organization is clearly important, but this is only half of the story. Unless you can match these to the projects and initiatives the business needs to implement then you won’t benefit from them.
That is why OpusView is a holistic People-Tech solution. We combine talent mapping with talent assignment within a single fully integrated solution that empowers business leaders to make informed decisions that result in the best outcomes.
We have deep competency analysis that allows Project Office staff to scan the talent pool for exactly the right person to fulfil key roles, not just based upon raw skills but also on validated competencies and 360 feedback from colleagues.
Our skills matrix can be adapted to suit any industry sector and company specific terminology making it the perfect fit and easy to use.
We have the ability to define job roles, titles that link back to the matrix making the role of internal recruiters so much easier to search for the right candidates and for project leaders to build the best team.
Team Managers can also objectively assess their teams and identify what skills are missing, who needs training and what the impact would be of losing someone from the team. This allows proactive measures to be taken and targeted training to reduce these risks.
All of this is presented through beautiful visualizations and intelligent searching to make the task so much easier, especially for larger organizations where staffing maybe across multiple locations and team sizes making it impossible to keep track of the talent within the company. Matchmaking really has never been so easy.
If you’ve not done so already, please take a look around our website (https://opusview.com) and the resources that we have. Better still contact us and maybe take advantage of our amazing offers allowing you to get up and running on OpusView for free!
