Strong demand for internal talent marketplaces
The traditional career path is increasingly dissolving in favor of individual professional development, which sometimes leads employees into a new field. More than 50% of staff find it easier to find a job externally rather than within the company according to Deloitte’s 2019 Human Capital Trends report.
Given the need to retain talent, it is time for companies to invest in internal talent marketplaces. In combination with an individual, digital career advisor, employees can be given support in re-and upskilling. By advertising internal positions or projects, all relevant skills that are lacking can be identified immediately by employees. The digital career advisor recommends instantly how skill gaps may be closed through on- and off-the-job training. Not only employees but also managers benefit from it. They can fill projects and positions faster, but also have a much better understanding of the skills, skill gaps and skill preferences of the workforce.
