Skilled Credentials Action Planner
The Skilled Credentials Action Planner is a free, self-paced way for busy HR professionals to learn about and adopt a skills-based hiring or retention strategy for your organization. Employers who implement skills-first strategies gain access to expanded pools of talent to draw from for open positions, increase loyalty and potential among current employees, and set themselves up for a future where more people will have navigated to work along pathways other than getting a 2- or 4-year degree.
Did you know, since 2018, the number of people enrolling in a two- or four-year degree program has fallen by nearly 10%? At this point, two in three working-age adults in the United States don’t have a four-year degree.
Full of resources, knowledge, and guided learning prompts, the Skilled Credentials Action Planner is a self-paced tool that takes you on a step-by-step journey to assess the readiness of your organization and your team, learn about how to integrate change management methodologies into your day-to-day work, and select, learn, and develop a work plan for one of nine skills-first strategies. Over the course of the Action Planner, you’ll be taken through a series of prompts that will, when you finish, be compiled into an action plan that you can use to turn your goal into a reality.
The Skilled Credentials Action Planner was developed by the SHRM Foundation in partnership with Jobs for the Future. It was made possible with funding from the Charles Koch Foundation.
