Ep 281: Skills, Mobility and AI
We are currently living through a period of time where assessment that's based on skills and potential has never been more critical. As the economic crisis plays out, employers need to understand the skills base within their workforces to drive mobility and enable redeployment. At the same time, correctly understanding the transferable skills of available talent will help companies make some fantastic hires.
Unfortunately, though recruiting is still dominated by a reliance on resumes and other outdated practices. So how might this be changed and how can technology help to drive our industry forward.
