It’ll also help an employee know if they’d be successful within the role if they can see they have the skills required for the job.

With companies where training is essential such as, working within a food premises or within a factory, skill profiling is a handy tool to have.

This is essential for companies where audits and inspections happen regularly and hold a lot of importance for the business’s reputation. Auditors and inspectors can visit the company and view the records easily with skill profiling. Organisation is helpful in these instances in helping a company look professional and compliant with the legal requirements expected.

Identifies knowledge gaps

As an employee it can be difficult to find out what skills are needed to develop within their career whilst also working. Without skill profiling it could take lots of time during their working hours to find this information out.

However, using it means it’ll all be in one location giving the employee a chance to see what skills they’re missing, if any.
