The Problem
Most companies don’t know what skills their employees have. Employees are placed in the wrong jobs. High potential talent is undiscovered throughout the company. Training programs are inefficient. Employees are unaware of their true potential. Reviews are anecdotal and subjective. Unnecessary resources and time are wasted on external recruiting, when the best candidate is often inside the company. Employee satisfaction is low. Turnover is high. Attrition costs are increasing. Career paths are vertical and predictable. It’s why today, knowing the skills of your employees is more valuable than ever.

The Breakthrough
Empath’s machine learning technology will identify the skills of every employee in your company. The skills of a workforce are identified by inferring (with a high level of accuracy) from information that already exists within the company. A complete picture of employee skill levels is developed. Managers are able to make skills-based decisions. Employee performance is boosted. Satisfaction levels and retention are increased. Acquisition costs lowered. A skills-based meritocracy is enabled.
Using Your Skills Inventory
Empath provides clients with a highly accurate company-wide skills inventory that includes skill proficiency levels by employee and by job role. Skills are matched to current and future roles, as well as to training and course-work. Our insights into a company’s skills portfolio enable a skills-based approach to talent management.
