What's a skills matrix?

A skills matrix is a visualization of your employee's skills and skill levels.

An example

  • Rows: Listing your employees, e.g. from a certain team
  • Columns: Listing selected skills, e.g. team-wide requirements
  • Cells: Indicate the person's aptitude of the given skill

It's handy tool to get a quick glimpse of skill gaps, opportunities, weaknesses, and strengths within your team or organization.

...and what's a skills matrix software?

Zavvy's skills matrix solution is a cloud-based tool that lets you visualize the results of 360° feedback on a heatmap table - among other things.

Its biggest strength is smartly connecting the data from different functions to avoid any kind of manual work.

More concretely, you can

  • Define & manage competencies for certain roles and display them in career paths
  • Run 360° feedback programs to assess actual skill levels based on the above
  • Display the results to get a strategic view on talent
  • Use the results to fill skill gaps and develop people with precision.

How do the skills get measured?

On Zavvy, the levels for your skills matrix get defined during 360° feedback. So, that means you'll get the perspective of

  • The reviewee themselves
  • Their peers
  • Their boss
  • Their direct reports

...or only a selection of the above.

By combining multiple perspectives, your skills matrix will be fed with fair data instead of biased estimations.

If you already have results from a prior skills assessment, you can also manually upload them upon request.
