SOFT SKILLS MAPPING
Soft skills mapping represents a crucial process for organizations to manage and develop the skills of their employees.
This approach allows for the classification of skills into different categories, such as technical, intellectual, motivational, organizational, and social.
It is beneficial for both employees, who gain awareness of their skills, and employers, who can identify areas for improvement and plan suitable training and development paths.
The soft skills mapping process begins with the analysis of roles within the organization. This involves clearly defining various business roles and the skills required for each.
Subsequently, the analysis proceeds to assess employees’ actual skills by comparing those required by their roles with those they currently possess. This helps identify both strengths and areas that require development.
Finally, the organization can create a soft skills mapping that reflects the entire workforce, using this data to guide staff training and development, enhance the recruitment process, and manage career progression.
Eggup supports its clients in the following stages of the process:
ANALYSIS OF PROFESSIONAL ROLES
This analysis begins by identifying the different roles within the organization and the specific skills required for each. It is important to include:
- Role Description: Clearly define the responsibilities and activities of each role.
- Technical Skills: Identify the specific technical skills needed to perform the duties of the role.
- Soft Skills: Consider key skills such as leadership, teamwork, and communication, which will also vary depending on the role and required seniority.
- Work Styles and Values: Identify how a person thinks, structures, organizes, and performs their work.
- Knowledge and Training: Evaluate the level of knowledge in specific areas/sectors and the required training.
SOFT SKILLS MAPPING AND MATCHING WITH EGGUP’S SOFT SKILLS
Once soft skills mapping is completed for each role, Eggup undertakes a matching process between role-specific competences and the soft skills within its database.
This enables the immediate identification of pre-configured assessments in Eggup’s catalogue that are better aligned with the specific profession, or the creation of a customized assessment.
From the analysis of all roles, a customized assessment is ultimately developed for the company to evaluate universal cross-functional skills for all employees, regardless of their role. This allows for the identification of each person’s alignment with the company’s culture.
USE OF ASSESSMENTS FOR SELF-EVALUATION OF SOFT SKILLS AND 360-DEGREE EVALUATION
Once identified or custom-built assessment tools for evaluating soft skills, it will be possible to identify for each individual:
- Areas for growth
- Alignment with the role and the company’s culture
Eggup also provides a detailed analysis of soft skills distribution with a gap analysis at both individual and overall population levels involved in the assessment process.
This work can be further detailed with the use of 360-degree evaluation, which can be introduced to complement the self-evaluation phase of soft skills.
This approach can provide extremely useful data for constructing targeted training and development plans, allowing the company to develop a soft skills model that accurately reflects the needs and goals of the entire workforce.
