Job Profile Builder is a platform component, it encompasses Job Families, Roles, Competencies and Job Codes. In my experience existing customers can upgrade to JPB for increased capability and new customers can leverage this across talent management modules. In this blog I wish to explain the significance of JPB for organisational growth and its relationship to other modules.
Job Profile Builder is a flexible and intuitive tool for recording elements of a job shared across Recruitment, Performance Management and Learning Management System. It allows customers to identify right skills, experiences, competencies and behaviors required for each role within the organisation.
Job Profile Builder is a replacement for legacy Job Families, Roles & Competencies framework. It expands beyond to allow customers to build complete Job Profiles with multiple content types.

Job Profile Builder in Employee Profile
Employee profile is what I would call an online resume summary as it provides a snapshot of employee skills, education, certificates and licences etc on a single screen. With JPB employee skills can be stored in a portlet and searched by Single, Multiple Skill and use “Find Someone Like” functionality to ensure the best fit possible. This functionality allows employees, managers and the organisation to tap talent easily.
In addition, position descriptions stored in JPB can be accessed through employee profile as seen in the image below:
Also SuccessFactors comes with an out-of-the-box, ready to use Job Profile library. This is industry verified content with 13K+ skills in 250+ pre-defined Job Families, each with 4-7 Job Roles with skills pre-mapped and each with 5 levels of proficiency.
Job Profile Builder in Recruitment
In Recruitment, we’ve seen that customers can store job descriptions, skills, qualifications, required experience, education, certifications, competencies and behaviours for every position in the organisation. JPB helps in identifying suitable candidates and uses Job Profile builder data for promotions, career advancement and development opportunities among employees.
Job Profile Builder in Performance Management
Competencies and associated behaviours stored in JPB can be integrated into Performance Review, in the competency section. PM forms competencies, writing assistant descriptors and behaviours come from JPB.
Job Profile Builder in Succession
Planners, Managers and employees can search skills from the company directory, allowing them to search and find people with particular skillsets for requirements. Position profiles allow users to manage profiles by position instead of only by role as skills, competencies etc.
Job Profile Builder in Career Development
In Career Worksheet, users can view development skills and job profiles.
Why is JPB valuable to organisations?
- Centralised management of job descriptions, competencies and standardised job descriptions for all the positons in the organisations.
- Job Requisitions can be pre filled based on description, competencies, skills and interview questions etc.
- JPB allows employees to view their skills and assess their need for training and development. Managers can assess and have an inventory of those same skills.
- Addresses the threat of underqualified staff while developing the skills the organisation requires.
- Allows visibility into a talent pool so it can be better mobilized to capitalise on growth opportunities.
- Provides consistent job references for nuanced headcount planning and thoughtful workforce planning.
