The Business Risk of Unverified

Skills Data  

Date: Wednesday, August 12 

Time: 11:30AM - 12:30PM CST

Presenter: Ben Eubanks, Principal Analyst, Lighthouse Research & Advisory

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 verified 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–and will also hear about a project that failed miserably due to the lack of skills clarity in the business.
