A New Paradigm

Skills-Driven Workforce Transformation can completely revamp how your workforce data is created, maintained and developed, so that your job architecture is mapped to the skills-based realities of the modern labour market.

It's a new paradigm for unlocking opportunities in your workforce planning and talent strategy, by basing your workforce data not on one-dimensional qualifications or outdated job titles, but rather on the fast-changing skills dynamics of today's and tomorrow's labour market.

Why Should Your Company do it?

It will unlock your workforce potential and provide a basis for cost-saving and profit-making workforce investments.

Case Study: Learning & Development


Slide 1 of 4


Lightcast helped a European company with over 10,000 employees ensure their L&D programme provided skills training to prime their workforce for impact.

Step 1: A Skills Audit

We did a skills audit of their entire job architecture to give them a dataset that genuinely reflected the workforce skills of today's labour market.

Step 2: A Comprehensive Solution

After the initial audit, we normalised their job roles to be in-line with current job titles and skills taxonomies. Finally, we exported this skills mapping to their company's HRIS.


Our work gave this large European company a comprehensive, regularly updated skills catalogue mapped to their HRIS enabling them to identify skills gaps and upskilling opportunities.
