Employees can and should use the help of their supervisors when reading through their profiles to ensure that the quality of the content is up to standards, based on the competencies/categories the organization has defined as relevant. When working together the estimation of the consultant's own skill level can be verified. Change comes from the top so get your leaders on board. Without their help, push and support it will be a great challenge to get relevant data into the system. Supervisors should make sure to get educated in the system to better be able to help their employees.
