Deploying skills-based hiring across local and state agencies
Businesses focus on skills to find the talent they need.
As a non-profit initiative of the Markle Foundation, Skillful’s focus has been on enabling all Americans – particularly those without a four-year college degree – to secure good jobs in a changing economy. In partnership with Microsoft and others, Skillful developed skills-based training and employment practices in collaboration with state governments, local employers, educators and workforce development organizations.
Employer Trainings include:
- Attracting Talent
- Candidate Evaluation
- Selecting and Onboarding
- Employee Retention
Skillful has worked with:
- Career coaches to equip them with the tools they need to help job seekers hone existing skills or acquire new ones and connect with good jobs.
- Employers to focus their recruiting, hiring, onboarding, and training processes on skills
- Educators to ensure that students graduate with the skills they need to flourish in the 21st century economy.
