Skills-Driven Workforce Transformation
A revolution in the way employers approach their workforce planning & talent strategy.
What is Skills-Driven Workforce Transformation?
Skills-Driven Workforce Transformation is about transforming your workforce data to a skills-led paradigm, giving you the foundation to develop your workforce in harmony with the changing skills dynamics of the modern labour market, and so unlock your true potential. As a global leader in Labour Market and Talent Analytics, we're working with companies across the globe on this genuinely exciting and truly revolutionary shift in the way they think about skills building, workforce data and organisational design.
A New Skills-Based Workforce Paradigm
The future of work is driven by skills. People used to be defined by the qualifications or job titles present in job descriptions. Now, they are defined by the skills they possess. But how can organisations develop their workforce and implement skills development strategies that genuinely reflect the skills dynamics of the fast-changing labour market, if their organisational design is still defined by one-dimensional qualifications and often outdated job titles?
Enter a totally new workforce paradigm: one where your job architecture is mapped to the skills-based realities of the modern labour market, and updated regularly to take account of the rapid pace of labour market change.
Case Study: Learning & Development
By basing your workforce data not on one-dimensional qualifications or outdated job titles, but rather on the fast-changing skills dynamics of today's and tomorrow's labour market, you gain the freedom to unlock multiple opportunities for improving your workforce planning and talent strategy.
Check out our case study of how we helped a large food and beverage company with over 10,000 employees that wanted to improve its Learning & Development by incorporating training the most market-relevant skills.
