As we navigate in the new world of work, the role of skills is becoming a more pertinent part of employee growth. How do we understand skills within our organisation to the same level that we understand our roles? How can we understand the current state of our talent infrastructure and where we need to get to?
People are the focal point for all successful organisations and skills are looking to be the new currency as we navigate into the new world of work. How do we understand skills at the same basic level that we would understand our emails? How can you understand the current state of your talent infrastructure and comprehend where we need to get to?
Can you currently effectively identify and address your talent and skills gap?
In an evolving world of work, the only constant is the change that comes with it. The role of talent has been revolutionised by the use of data but still, we hear about talent functions not truly understanding their current business situation before trying to develop.
Where does your current focus lie within your talent journey? Is there more focus on recruitment than retention? Do you have an understanding of your current talent infrastructure?
Finding top talent today can sometimes feel like a sparring match in a Roman colosseum. In 2022, there’s less than one available worker for every job (0.76 workers per opening), the lowest in history. It’s no wonder recruiters are struggling.

Ever hear of the Valley of Uncertainty?
No? Well, Click Boarding coined the term and concept of the Valley of Uncertainty. It’s our analogy of the gap that exists between Talent Acquisition and Talent Management. Sounds like a scary place to be, right? The Valley of Uncertainty is where your newly hired candidates fall off the bandwagon… when they’re most at risk.
Created in collaboration with TALiNT Partners, our “Data-driven diversity” whitepaper is the result of an insightful roundtable attended by a select group of U.S. talent leaders. The discussion centred around the innovative ways in which leading companies in North America are creating meaningful change, as well as the powerful relationship between data and diversity.
Problem people are exhausting. These employees spend most of their time either complaining about their responsibilities or explaining why they can’t possibly accomplish what needs to get done. When someone notices they’re not doing their job, the problem employee is often furious for being reprimanded and complains that they’re being harassed.
As economies gradually open up and we move further into the New Future of Work, various trends are becoming apparent, in the workplace and beyond. Key among these are a strong desire among workers for greater flexibility in, and real control over, where, when and how they work. In addition, employees have a growing preference for working for organisations that have strong environmental and ethical credentials, those which genuinely embrace diversity, equality and sustainability.
