How are skill sets defined?

What is a skill set?

A skill set is a combination of abilities you can apply to perform tasks well. In TalentBoost, skill sets are used to combine the necessary skills needed for different teams, positions, or employees. Therefore, a skill set may be a set of skills for all users, e.g. related to Empathy, or be strictly directed at employees holding a specific position, e.g. Junior Front-End Developer.

To define a skill set, head to the SkillSets tab. There you can either create a new SkillSet, using the Add new SkillSet button, located in the top right corner, or edit a present SkillSet by hovering over it and clicking Edit.
