Skills are the core currency for future talent management
In the modern workplace, the role of talent management is evolving. With organizations increasingly focused on developing employees' capabilities and ensuring they're able to deliver high-quality outcomes, there's much greater emphasis placed on identifying, measuring, and rewarding people based on what they bring to the table.
The concept of "job families" - the idea that certain jobs within an organization are more similar than others - is starting to fall out of favor. Instead, organizations are beginning to view themselves as a collection of individuals, each bringing their unique set of talents, experiences, and abilities to the table.
As such, it's important to think about how we define the workforce. Rather than focusing solely on job roles, it's becoming clear that skill sets are the primary way of understanding the makeup of our workforce. This is why skills are now seen as the key currency of talent management.
