Skillful Talent Training Series

Deploying skills-based hiring across local and state agencies

Businesses focus on skills to find the talent they need.

The rapid adoption of new technologies has created challenges for many employers, from a shortage of skilled workers to high turnover rates, resulting in the need to change the way we hire, train and develop our workforce.

The Rework America Alliance developed a set of proven tools and practices through its work in Colorado with employers and employer associations, the state of Colorado, post-secondary education institutions and local community organizations that serve job seekers and incumbent workers. These resources provide practical guidance and support to help employers and employer intermediaries implement an inclusive, skills-based strategy.​​

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.
