Technical skills change fast, with the average lifespan of technical skills lasting just 2.5 years. It’s critical for organizations to prioritize skills development so that employees remain agile and stay ahead of the competition. But leaders also need assurance that the skills learning their teams are doing is resulting in deep and actionable knowledge on the job. Badges and certifications offer a credible way to verify their employees’ skills acquisition.
Employees can earn third-party badges and certifications after passing rigorous exams on in-demand skills like cloud computing, cybersecurity, and project management. As the number of employees earning certifications grows, leaders get insights into the company’s skills landscape and can take action to close future skills gaps.
