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.

Skillful 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 are now embedded in the Markle Foundation's Rework America Alliance.

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.
