Series 1: Developing Your Organisation's Skills Strategy
Jun 25, 2020 Season 1 Episode 11
Elliott Scott HR

In our final episode of Series One, Emily Ramji chats to Janice Burns and Todd Tauber from Degreed about how organisations can develop a more coherent “skills” strategy. As organisations are forced to rapidly adapt to changing landscapes, the need to identify, develop and redeploy skills has never been greater.

At the organisational level, accurate skills data enables strategic workforce planning and allows the company to successfully deliver its business plan. For individuals, how their skills are recognised, developed and used underpins employee experience, organisational culture, wellbeing, performance and ultimately shapes their career.
