Abstract

Employee search software's in todays scenario are expected to enable searching right experts apart from merely searching employees by name. This requires every employee of the organisation to input his skills set either in form of words or tags. Often this is not the most reliable way and employees do not update their profiles. This causes the search system to return wrong results or atleast not correctly ordered results when a search is issued to find experts. Proposed is a technique which can auto create skill set data for employees based on their internal and external contributions like patents, presentations, whitepapers etc
