Preparing Your Workforce for the Needs of Tomorrow


The human arsenal knows no boundaries, but at the same time, it knows nothing better than improving at a consistent pace. We can say this because the stated ability has already fetched the world some huge milestones, with technology appearing as a rather unique member of the group. The reason why technology’s credentials are so anomalous is purposed around its skill-set, which was unprecedented enough to realize all the possibilities for us that we couldn’t have imagined otherwise. Nevertheless, a closer look should be able to reveal how the whole runner was also very much inspired by the way we applied those skills across a real world environment. The latter component was, in fact, what gave the creation a spectrum-wide presence and made it the ultimate centerpiece of every horizon. Now, having such a powerful tool run the show did expand our experience in many different directions, but even after reaching so far ahead, this prodigious concept called technology will somehow keep on delivering the right goods. The same has grown to become a lot more evident in recent times, and assuming one new HRM-themed development pans out just like we envision, it will only propel that trend towards greater heights over the near future and beyond.

Udemy, a company dedicated to improving lives through learning, has officially launched a brand-new badging offering, which is designed to let businesses verify technical skills and future-proof their workforce. According to certain reports, the stated offering is presented in a manner that accommodates three critical phases of skill-building i.e. discovery, preparation, and demonstration. Starting from discovery, the badging solution informs you on top technical skills needed in today’s workforce, and it will do so through comprehensive insights. This includes nearly 200 in-demand and verifiable technical badges. Once the company knows which skills to prioritize for the moment, it can swiftly move to the next stage of preparation. Here, we have a certification preparation center featuring curated learning paths and hands-on labs and assessments. Such a facility should play a huge role when it comes to empowering employees to leverage expert advice for the purpose of embracing evolution across the technological landscape. On a practical note, Udemy’s certification preparation center will hand you a chance to score badges connected to AWS, Azure, CompTIAn and other esteemed solutions. Complementing the same is a dedicated training dashboard which will ensure employees can seamlessly track their progress and overall readiness for the relevant assessments. Not just that, the dashboard will also tell you all about the details you would need to register for exams with the official badge issuer. After earning their badges, employees can then also import them and signal new skills acquisition to employers, while simultaneously celebrating the milestone alongside their peers and social networks.

“We’re thrilled to help leading organizations optimize their technical learning and development programs and enable them to make informed business decisions based on concrete skills insights,” said David Koehn, Vice President of Product at Udemy Business. “Through our Integrated Skills Framework and the introduction of Badging capabilities, businesses can measure impact not just by minutes learned but rather by the verifiable badges earned, ensuring their employees demonstrate skills mastery.”

The development delivers an interesting follow-up to one recently-conducted survey where it was revealed that almost 87% of leaders report significant skills gaps in their organizations. This problem is given further context by another report claiming how more than a whopping 85 million jobs could go unfulfilled by the year 2030. As a result, an estimated 98% executives across different industries are now adopting a skills-based organizational model, which emphasizes importance of sustainable skill-building to overcome any future obstacles.

“One of the biggest challenges currently facing our enterprise customers is their inability to confidently assess and validate the technical skills landscape within their organization.” said Stephanie Stapleton Sudbury, President of Udemy Business. “We believe our Integrated Skills Framework will provide organizations with a digestible and holistic way to assess their current skills landscape so they can make informed business decisions about their learning and development needs. With the introduction of Udemy’s new Badging capabilities, organizations can now not only accelerate skills development, but also certification attainment and skills validation.”

Founded in 2009, Udemy has climbed up the ranks by bringing learners a whole spectrum of courses, ranging from programming and data science to leadership and team building, offering the same in various different languages. To go beyond individual users, we also have Udemy Business, which helps businesses offer on-demand learning for all employees. The platform’s excellence in what it promises can be validated through its clientele that includes FenderⓇ, Glassdoor, On24, The World Bank, Volkswagen, and plenty other big brands.
