If you want to use our ongoing feedback or performance review modules, you should familiarize yourself with the company skills framework (available under Settings > Edit Skills and Goals, which we already pre-filled in your account. Leapsome will collect feedback for all skills listed under "company skills" for all employees. We recommend that you keep this best-practice skill framework developed by experts.
Alternatively, you can personalize the company skills framework by defining skills that are relevant for all colleagues. Some of our customers also use their company values here. In any case, try to limit yourself to three to ten items in the company skills framework - it will make giving feedback much easier!
Why do we link feedback to skill dimensions? There are good reasons for this:
- For the employee: Employees get valuable, specific input on where to focus their learning & development effort.
- For peer interaction: Employees know what’s relevant. It helps them to observe and give each other feedback on what matters.
- For the company: The core values and expectations are communicated more consistently, so they become visible and are executed throughout the company.
Adding a skill
Select a short title, add an optional description and pick the category that suits best.
Removing a skill
Removing a skill is easy, just click the corresponding button. Please be aware that all feedback collected on that skill will no longer be available.
Editing a skill
Editing a skill is limited to changing its description. Why? Once you started collecting feedback on a specific skill, it would be unfair to move the basis of evaluation. If you want to measure something new, we therefore suggest to create a new skill.
