What HR Looks Like in 2020
• The Rise of Skills-Based Hiring: As the battle for top talent continues, we’ll see more companies turn to skills-based hiring as a way to more readily identify and connect with qualified candidates in 2020. And, since they provide a verified record of an individual’s knowledge and skills, we’ll see digital credentials emerge as an invaluable tool in skills-based hiring. Next year, companies will hone in on these credentials as a way for people to be discovered for opportunities for which they wouldn’t normally have been considered.
• Say Hello to a Standardized Skill Framework: Historically, every employer has had a different way of communicating skills, performance and accomplishments - if they communicated it at all. Now, with a critical mass of employers moving to recognize and certify the skills of their employees, the importance of a standardized approach to reporting outcomes has become clear. Digital credentials are bringing consistency, data, and trust to skill recognition and human capital decision-making, and we’ll see more companies placing value on these credentials as the universal competency framework in 2020.
