All of our employees and co-workers have specific skills and skill sets they use everyday to perform their jobs. If they didn’t, they probably wouldn’t have been hired in the first place, right? For example, you may have developers who are proficient in multiple software languages or have obtained specific certifications.
However, it’s not always readily apparent what specific skills each person possesses - especially if you are a project manager new to the company or haven’t worked extensively with a certain individual. What if there was a way to not only easily identify which skills your resources have, but to also quickly allocate those resources to projects?
Tempo Planner now gives users the ability to add skills to user profiles. Skills are defined as competencies and proficiencies that users and team members have developed over the course of their careers.
With this new capability, users will be able to:
- Build a database of skills, independent of user roles, and assign them directly to users and team members
- Take stock of existing resources with the aim of matching talent to project needs
- Identify any shortage of required skills for current and upcoming projects
This new feature not only helps Team Leads and Resources Managers plan work while matching the proper skills to project roles, but it also helps Human Resource departments search to find the right candidates that can fill the positions for any upcoming projects based on the targeted skill requirements.
