As organizations expand globally, efficiently identifying, assessing, and deploying talent across diverse regions and markets becomes increasingly critical. At Whoz, we introduce a groundbreaking innovation that promises to reshape the landscape of talent management and deployment: the Professional Services Ontology™, driven by the power of artificial intelligence and seven years of R&D in the professional services field.

In this article, we’ll embark on a journey into the world of Whoz’s Professional Services Ontology™, exploring how this cutting-edge technology can revolutionize global talent deployment for professional services companies, such as IT services, engineering firms, and consulting agencies. Discover how this advanced technology functions as a treasure map, unveiling the hidden gems within your workforce and propelling your organization toward global success.

Unveiling Whoz’s Professional Services Ontology™

At the core of Whoz’s suite of solutions is the Professional Services Ontology™, a tool specially designed to meet the unique needs of professional services companies. Using artificial intelligence, this ontology solves complex challenges related to talent deployment in an increasingly globalized environment.

The Treasure Map Metaphor: Uncovering Hidden Talent

Imagine a skills ontology as a treasure map for talent within your organization. Just as a treasure map reveals the location of hidden riches, a skills ontology uncovers the diverse skills and talents your employees possess. Picture each skill as a unique gem, and the ontology as the map guiding you to these invaluable treasures.

With this map in hand, you become a skill explorer, uncovering gems you might have overlooked previously. It’s akin to discovering hidden treasure troves of expertise within your workforce. And just as great explorers never stop searching, a dynamic skills ontology continually evolves, ensuring you always find new gems as your employees acquire new skills. This concept not only boosts talent engagement but also offers practical insights.

So, with your skills ontology, you’re not just managing talent; you’re embarking on an exhilarating treasure hunt for skills, enriching your organization with a wealth of possibilities.

The Strategic Advantages of the Professional Services Ontology™

Now, let’s explore how Whoz’s Professional Services Ontology™ seamlessly aligns with the strategic objectives of forward-thinking professional services companies concerning global talent deployment:

1. Global Skill Mapping

Our ontology empowers organizations to map skills not only locally but worldwide. This means businesses can identify talent in various regions and align those skills with regional demands and market-specific needs. In the ever-evolving global marketplace, the ability to tap into talent on a global scale is a game-changer.

Furthermore, Whoz’s Professional Services Ontology™ serves as a versatile multilingual dictionary, specializing in the comprehensive description, identification, and categorization of professional job roles and skill sets essential to the global professional services market. This ontology is adept at translating skills into eight languages (French, English, German, Dutch, Spanish, Italian, Portuguese, and Polish), and it boasts an impressive coverage of 98% of the worldwide professional services industry.

2. Bridging Global Skills Gaps

Tackling skills gaps on a global scale can be daunting. However, our ontology not only detects these gaps but also provides insights on how to bridge them. It offers guidance on suitable training or recruitment strategies on a global scale, helping you ensure that your talent pool is as diverse as your market reach.

3. Objective Global Expertise Assessment

Maintaining a consistent and objective assessment of skills expertise across borders is vital for effective talent deployment. Whoz’s technology, known as XPS™ score (eXPerience-based Seniority), enables organizations to measure the actual experience of talent against a given skill. The longer a skill has been practiced, the higher the score. This innovation ensures a standardized, dynamic and unbiased approach to talent evaluation, providing insights into not just what a talent knows but also how recently they’ve applied that knowledge.

4. Intelligent Global Talent Matching

Matching the right talent with the right opportunities becomes increasingly complex as professional services firms expand globally. Our ontology simplifies this process by automatically identifying the most suitable candidates for specific roles, irrespective of their geographic location. It enables organizations to propose profiles for matching with ongoing opportunities, streamlining the talent allocation process.

5. Agile Adaptation to Local Needs

Global talent deployment often requires adaptation to diverse local market conditions. The ontology evolves in tandem with your global workforce, enabling you to swiftly adjust talent strategies to meet regional requirements. This adaptability is key to staying ahead in today’s dynamic business environment.

6. Comprehensive Skills Capture

One remarkable feature of Whoz’s Professional Services Ontology™ is its ability to capture an astounding 10 times more skills per talent compared to traditional talent management systems. This capability is a game-changer for organizations seeking to fully leverage the diverse skill sets of their workforce.
