Edit your skills by navigating to ‘Skills’ in the bottom left-hand corner. We’ve already pre-filled a best-practice framework in your account.
You can keep this framework or personalize the competency framework by defining relevant skills for all employees. Some of our customers also use their company values here. Try to limit yourself to three to ten items in the competency framework - it makes giving feedback much easier!
Team skills that are only relevant for some employees (like marketing or engineering skills) can be added as team skills.
Adding a skills
Select a short title, add an optional description and pick the category that suits best. You can decide if the skill applies to everyone or is only relevant to a specific team.
For the team skills, you can add several teams to one skill. The following skill applies to Sales and HR.
Removing a skill
Removing a skill is easy; navigate to the list view, and click the corresponding button. All feedback collected on that skill will still be available for past cycles, however, they will not be included in future cycles.

- For the company: The core values and expectations are communicated more consistently, so they become visible and are executed throughout the company.
