Derry business Learning Pool identifies a fundamental shift in how organisations think about talent and development.
Artificial intelligence (AI) technology revealed by Learning Pool helps companies identify and respond to skills gaps as they emerge in their organisations.
The Derry business is leveraging the know-how of People-Analyltix, a Swiss AI pioneer it recently acquired.
“The widening skills gaps that are stopping businesses from growing at the pace they desire are apparent in every boardroom conversation”
Learning Pool said its new technology reflects a profound change in learning technologies and a fundamental shift in how organisations think about talent and development.
A fundamental shift
“Every global enterprise is struggling to attract and retain skilled employees, and the widening skills gaps that are stopping businesses from growing at the pace they desire are apparent in every boardroom conversation,” said Ben Betts, CEO of Learning Pool.
“Learning Pool’s acquisition of People-Analytix, and the subsequent advancements it will bring to our platform, means that we can now give customers the power to automatically address skills gaps as they appear. It is a tremendously exciting technology and a fundamental component in our wider mission to support talent development in creating extraordinary performers”.
The World Economic Forum predicts that by 2025, as many as 50% of all workers will need reskilling. To address this global issue, skills development can no longer be satisfied by being simply reactive.
“Fosway research shows that skills are a critical strategic priority for organisations,” explained Fiona Leteney, senior analyst with Fosway Group.
“However, only 20% of learning professionals say they are very effective at upskilling and reskilling. Both organisational agility and resilience are dependent on developing the right skills at pace, Learning Pool’s acquisition of People-Analytix significantly strengthens its skills capabilities to address those needs.”
