The many benefits of discovering what you already know

It has been a long standing challenge for organisations to provide a single view of people's skills profiles without having to create new profiles, with the associated costs and complexities of this approach.

Being able to discover all the skills and expertise information spread across, and therefore usually hidden in separate systems, brings many benefits. Many of these benefits are obvious but some may surprise you.

Benefits for your organisation, your employees and your customers.

Know what you know

Organisations who can properly understand their capabilities are in the best position to support employee agility. This brings huge benefits to every person and organisation in your supply chain.

But how do you uncover this existing knowledge?

The simple answer is to create an employee skills inventory.

It is of course important to plan such a system around your existing systems and data. With the right approach and the right technology, it is not as difficult to get started as you might think. The sooner you start, the sooner you will benefit from the following.

How an effective employee skills inventory can help.

TeamFolio is a far better way to manage skills.

We really needed a way to locate the people we wanted quickly. There were a lot of emails flying around but many people wouldn't respond, even if they had the skills.

We assessed TeamFolio carefully and searched for any other solutions with the same capabilities, but drew a blank. The only other option would have been to build it ourselves.

You can also see videos of our previous DiscoverMe software on the DiscoverMe YouTube channel. Many of the concepts shown in these videos remain relevant to TeamFolio.
