The Cultural Changes Needed to Become a Skill-Based Organization

Talk of skills is everywhere. It dominated last fall’s HR Technology Conference in Las Vegas. It’s the subject of a recent book on the deconstruction of jobs. Countless blogs and webinars are talking about a new world of work, where skills replace jobs. 

But what does this mean, in practice? What must an organization do, what must it have in place, what policies and culture must it develop to become a skill-based organization? 

Turning to skills is certainly about more than adopting the latest technology.

This eBook describes what a “skills organization” means to all aspects of the employee lifecycle, including: 

  • Architecture 
  • Learning & Development 
  • Screening & Interviewing
  • Onboarding
  • Pay & Rewards
  • Career Development
  • Performance Management and Promotions
  • Projects and Work Deployment
  • Workforce Planning and People Analytics
  • Layoffs and Redeployment
  • And More!
