The Transition from Jobs to Skills: Tools for the Journey

The way we think about compensation is changing:

  • agile workforce management increases the need to identify, retain and move high-demand skilled talent
  • COVID landscape demands efficiency and not losing the right talent
  • digital and tech skills, as well as gig workers are becoming more prevalent in the workplace

Many organizations are finding it challenging to make timely decisions about whether to reskill, recruit or outsource for a particular skill because they lack good information. Only 25% of companies consider themselves successful in classifying, tracking and rewarding skills. There are tools available to help you make this transition by 1) understanding what skills your organization will/should focus on, 2) gaining insight into which skills are influencing the pay of a selected job and 3) providing skills-based rewards recommendations at the individual employee level.
