It’s always a challenging task for any organization to make sure that they have the right people and the right skills to carry on the work efficiently and effectively. Having a proper skill set among the employees is crucial for the success of the organization. Organizations which don’t have the tools to keep a tab on the skills of their employees are more prone to become inefficient which in turn propels the organization on a dangerous trajectory.
What is a Skill Matrix?
A skills matrix is a visual tool that displays, in the form of a table, each employee’s level of competency in a specific skill set in the organization. Thus it gives a comprehensive idea about the skills as well as proficiency in those skills for each employee. This makes it an essential tool for any data-driven HR professional and the managers while manpower planning and project planning respectively.
Why is the Skill Matrix Important?
Skill Matrix is important for the HR team and the Managers. The HR team is concerned with the skill set of employees in their organization so that they can do effective manpower planning. The managers on the other hand should have a proper understanding about the skill set in their team and skill proficiency while doing the project planning.
