Conducting a skills audit and producing meaningful reports is a time consuming task that can be difficult to manage. That’s why Cognology comes with all the tools you need to automate your process. The software does the heavy lifting, leaving you to use the results to move your business forward.

Here’s just some of the ways the software helps.

  • Use automated reminders to ensure your process is completed
  • Produce a heat mapped skills matrix to identify gaps

Cognology’s Flexible Approach to Skills Auditing

The Cognology Skills Management Software supports a number of ways of conducting a skills audit. You can choose the method that most suits your needs.


The open approach is a user driven method where people can list the skills they have at any point in time. Each person’s skills appear on their profile and can be included in reporting.



If having the right skills is mission critical for your company you can define a library of skills and position profiles. People can then be audited against those profiles.


For customers who want a very granular assessment of skills and skill levels, assessment surveys can be completed by an individual, their manager or using the 360 Feedback approach.

Skills Matrix and Reporting

Cognology comes with a range of reports to help you understand the skills landscape in your organisation. One of the most useful reports is the Skills Matrix which maps people against a set of skills. It uses colour coding to help you identify areas of strength and gaps in skills.

Reports include a range of customisation and filtering options such as the ability to report on certain groups, locations, current or historical data.

Powerful Skills Search

Tap into the wealth of skills data you collect. Search for combinations of skills to put together project teams or to find people for internal roles. Results are colour coded and ranked to make finding the most skilled people easier.

For example, imagine you are looking for people who can write well and have some creative flair. Here we can see 3 people who are skilled in these areas and could help work on a special project.
