Coffee Chat #206: The Skills Based Hiring Tipping-Point

Tuesday, November 9, 2021
1:00 PM - 2:00 PM (EST)

Event Details

As skill recording standards like Certified Learning Records start to be adopted by educators and certifiers, employers are one step closer to being able to hire based on skill instead of basing hiring decisions on an individual's education or employment background. Yet a chain of events will still be required to bring the promise of skills-based hiring mainstream. Join us for a conversation about how the human capital management pipeline will need to evolve to support skills-based hiring. We will discuss the primary technological and psychological challenges that we need to address with employers, job seekers, and the technology companies that facilitate how they interact.
