Skills are the New Currency: Are You Measuring Your Staff’s Skills?


June 23, 2022 at 9am EDT

One of the biggest lessons from this pandemic is that employers need to invest in upskilling their staff to keep up with the changing work landscape. However, many organizations were caught flatfooted when they realized they do not have a proper framework and approach to measure the skills of their staff, let alone develop them.

Re-Imagining Recruitment


July 21, 2022 at 9am EDT

For many managers and those working in HR, recruitment is often an activity that is executed without much structure or thought. Interview questions often vary and many times have little to do with the job, and selecting a candidate and setting starting pay tend to be based on personal bias rather than the candidate’s skill level. In this webinar, we will demonstrate how skills can be used to not only provide transparency and objectivity when targeting the right candidate but also provide much-needed structure and corporate standards to the entire job interview exercise.
