Data doesn’t have to be overwhelming: How to understand your skills inventory (On Demand)

Picture this: You’ve just created a brand-new role to lead a new business stream. You know you’ve got the in-house talent perfect for the job, but you aren’t quite sure which of two candidates can hit the ground running from day one.

It’s not always so easy to figure out how to do that. Using skill data, learn how to find them, train them, and give them the opportunity to succeed. Understanding what skill data is and where it comes from can open up a world of new information to your organisation to help with decision-making.

In this 60-minute webinar, in partnership with Degreed, we hear from David Kuntz, Head of Data Science, Degreed, as he explains how to understand the skills your people have, foster the growth of those people through the growth of their skills, and offer them mobility.

Following David’s presentation, you’ll get a chance to get your questions on the topic answered by both David and a renowned industry leader.

Here are the key takeaways you’ll gain post this webinar:
  • How to make sense of your skill data
  • Understanding what skill data is and laying the foundation for a skill assessment
  • What we can see in the data, and how that can inform decision-making
