The skills-based movement | 12 Industry Articles from 2021

2021 has been a chaotic year with our work environment continuing to change at an accelerating rate.

Delivery is moving away from the concept of function-based work, towards a dynamic pool of skilled and talented people from across, or even outside an organization.

The clear understanding of skill gaps and strengths is providing new pathways for people to upskill or be mentored. This is supplanting a sole focus on hiring.

For people to stand out, be heard, grow and thrive, skills are becoming the single source of objective truth.

The skills-based movement is here, and it’s picking up pace… fast.

And the good news is that it’s never been easier to build your skills inventory, assess skill levels at scale, and visualize skill gaps to act on.

You just have to get started — and we’re here to help, simply book in a time to chat and see what it’s all about.

Better yet, you’re not alone. Over the last year we’ve seen Deloitte, Mckinsey & Company, Forbes, Boston Consulting Group, SHRM, Gartner, Lighthouse Research and Advisory, and Mercer all talking about the benefits of a skills-based approach. (And this content is just the tip of the iceberg).

So grab a drink, and have a read of these 12 Articles from 2021.
