Talent Profile

TALENT PROFILE is a tool within Endeavor that enables employees to create an up-to-date profile of their career experience, educational background, and professional certifications and skills. It provides a means to make an individual’s talent and qualifications more visible within the University’s talent pool.

WHY SHOULD I COMPLETE THE TALENT PROFILE?

Completing the Talent Profile will help to document your professional experience and accomplishments, provide greater visibility of your background and skills to your manager, and assist you in your professional development and the achievement of your career aspirations. It can also help you prepare effectively for job opportunities because it requires careful thought about your past and present experience and skills.

WHO HAS ACCESS TO MY INFORMATION?

In Endeavor, an individual’s profile details are only visible to the individual, those who have a reporting relationship with the individual, and to HR staff for talent development purposes.

Peers outside of an individual’s reporting line cannot view the individual’s profile information. The only information available to everyone is the data that appears on a department’s organization chart which includes a photo (if uploaded), employee name, position title, email address and telephone number.

WHAT TYPE OF INFORMATION IS REQUESTED?

Departments may decide whether to require completion of the Talent Profile or designate certain sections for completion. A department may also identify specific skills and competencies that are of particular importance in accomplishing the department’s goals and processes. If your department asks you to upload a photo, it should be appropriate for a workplace environment. Consult with your supervisor on the requirements set by your department.

HOW DO I ACCESS AND COMPLETE THE PROFILE?

You can access and update your profile at any time using Endeavor. It is a good idea to update it periodically with your latest accomplishments and major projects. You do not have to enter all of your updates at once; you can save your latest entries and return to it later.

NOTE: Endeavor does not save earlier versions of your profile and updates only those sections/fields you choose to edit.

FAQ’s

What is considered a “representative project?”

Biannual planning and coordination of major academic symposia requiring a variety of actions is representative of a major project; scheduling participants for a department meeting is not. Representative projects are typically large in scope and require multiple, complex actions and the management of several individuals and/or groups for the period of the project.

Can I add other skills? What type of skills should I add?

Endeavor allows you to add skills in addition to what is already in the skills bank. If you decide to add skills unique to your function and role, use the most commonly understood word(s). Also, know that HR will periodically audit the skills bank to eliminate redundancies and label skills in the most universally understood language.

Does anyone have to approve the skills that I select or add?

You and your supervisor should discuss and agree upon skills and the level of proficiency that you propose. There is no formal approval signature required.

What about skills I learned in the past but no longer use (frequently)?

Include them if the skill is considered foundational to other skills and/or if it is one you could use at some point in the future.

Is Talent Profile used as a resume repository so I could be considered for a position I did not directly apply for?

Talent Profile allows your line of management to “drill down” and view your information so it provides an opportunity for functional management to know details about your background. However, at the present time, Talent Profile is not being utilized as a direct internal recruitment tool.

Will I be given time during my normal work day to fill out the profile?

Yes, you will be allowed a reasonable amount of time to enter information and to do updating on at least an annual basis.
