A detailed checklist for selecting the right upskilling platform
Upskilling programs are not one-size-fits-all. You should choose a platform that’s holistic, scalable, customizable and can adapt to your organization’s needs over time.
The right upskilling platform should also align your business’s growth objectives with the goals of workers across every skill, function and role.
The most effective upskilling platforms should:
Align learning so that skills acquisition supports both business and individual goals.
Identify skills gaps in your company, and compare them with industry peers.
Formulate customized learning pathways to close skill gaps and integrate with current learning management (LMS) and human resource management systems (HRMS).
Offer scenario-based opportunities to practice and apply skills, so workers can earn function-specific credentials through experiential learning.
Provide a platform for sharing and finding digital solutions that solve business problems and support scale across teams to deliver ROI.
These six key features and capabilities can help you get started quickly, scale on your own timeline and advance your company’s journey toward digital transformation. Let’s take a closer look at each one.
