How influential is skills data in your organization?  Skills data can be an obvious and utilized source for talent insights that influence people decisions, a long-awaited untapped gold mine to some, or an even absolute mystery to others. But whether you are a fine-tuned HR operations machine or ready to take your first step into leveraging skills, there is an undoubted benefit when working with clean and unbiased data.

Research from Lighthouse Research & Advisory shows that employers primarily look at skills data from sources that may not be the most accurate. This is a clear limitation for employers, as skill data impacts every talent decision from hiring and internal mobility to leadership development and more. At a fundamental level, this impacts the performance of the business.

In this session, renowned researcher and author Ben Eubanks will explore what it takes to create a set of validated skills and why it is critical to share skill priorities with every employee, not just the executive team. Attendees will hear a case study of a successful strategic initiative to help cement the concepts–you will also hear about a project that failed miserably due to the lack of skills clarity in the business.
