What is a Skills Requirement Checklist, and what are best practices, tools and templates for teams and organizations?
Definition of Skills Requirement Checklist
A Skills Requirement Checklist is a tool for employees and potential employees which lists the skills needed to perform a specific job, and the level of competency required of each skill.
Description of Skills Requirement Checklist
The first step in creating a Skills Requirement Checklist is to complete a competency mapping process for each job. Once that is completed, the checklist can be created. Each job will have specific requirements, from tangible skills such as typing speed, to more intangible, such as good communication skills. The benefits of the Skills Requirement Checklist for both the employer and employee are numerous, and include clarifying performance standards, documenting knowledge, and increasing communication which fosters a more positive work environment. When the time comes for performance evaluations, both the employer and employee have a clear set of skills and standards to evaluate.
