Skillful Talent Training Series

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.
