MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif. – August 12, 2020 – EdCast, the award-winning AI-powered Knowledge Cloud company, announced that, in conjunction with talent management partners, it has launched new and integrated career pathing and internal mobility solutions. This allows the company to offer complete and personalized talent management and upskilling capabilities. These solutions include skills assessments and talent marketplace integrations with other leading talent companies to offer internal mobility and job role matching capabilities for a complete talent development platform.
With current, rapidly-changing demands associated with upskilling, talent management, career pathing and distributed workforces, EdCast has been at the forefront of this dynamic space, with numerous alliances and integrations with a number of leading talent marketplace platforms. With such a large and complex market for corporate skills tools and platforms, EdCast offers a clear and simple solution by seamlessly integrating its acclaimed Learner Experience Platform (LXP) with these leading skills and talent management platforms, allowing organizations to offer personalized career planning options and recommendations for professional learning and skills development.
With EdCast’s integrated solution, HR and hiring managers can now address key internal mobility and talent management questions -- such as “Which employees could potentially be redeployed or quickly upskilled for critical open roles?” -- in seconds. In addition, employees can now meet key career pathing and upskilling needs, including what skills to develop -- and the exact steps to develop them -- to meet their and their employer’s short- and long-term goals.
“With today’s work uncertainty and rapidly-shifting skills needs, organizations urgently need to empower employees with career pathing and internal mobility,” said Karl Mehta, CEO and Founder of EdCast. “Our new capabilities provide a consumer-like experience with flexibility and choice to connect with any leading talent marketplace platform to help employers enable personalized career paths, thereby achieving savings in redeploying talent and promoting from within instead of hiring from outside.”
“The market for corporate skills solutions is explosive but also confusing, with many solutions and vendors,” said Josh Bersin, industry analyst and Founder of Josh Bersin Academy. “Platforms that can bring together learning, skills inference, knowledge management, and now career mobility are becoming critical parts of corporate infrastructure and form the basis for many new practices of management.”
