Role Profiles (also known as success or position profiles) form a critical framework on which recruiting, development and succession processes depend. They provide a clear definition of what is most important in a role so you can successfully hire for, promote, or develop existing talent for the challenges of the role.
Profiles are often developed just-in-time for hiring, and without consistency across the organization. Managers and local HR often lack the expertise and knowledge to identify and clarify the critical requirements for hiring and development. The role profiler takes you through a logical structured process so you can create high quality profiles without extensive training or consulting support.
The Role Profiler is designed to be used interactively during a conversation between HR and a subject matter expert, or in a focus group, to help guide the user through the whole design process. It takes you through defining the strategic issues that affect the role, key responsibilities and outcomes, the challenges that make the role difficult, and the key competencies, skills and knowledge required.
A global dictionary of levels, functions, business challenges and competencies links profiles and content across the system. This dictionary, along with intelligent searching technology helps provide examples and suggest content for the profile you are building.
The profiler contains a range of sample profiles to show you how to build quality profiles, and get you started in building your own. Samples are available across levels from individual contributor to leadership level, and across industries and functions. They are created with a consistent language and structure to help you build a set of clear consistent profiles across the organization.
Your profiles are all created within your organizational library where you can build and share your profiles. You can view usage of competencies, skills, knowledge, responsibilities, outcomes and challenges across your profiles so you can rationalize, de-duplicate and ensure consistency of language across profiles.
