SkillCloud

How can employees bring their authentic selves into the workplace?

 

SkillCloud highlights skills and interests that are not typically recognized in the workplace, closing the gap between passion and job title. SkillCloud's online platform allows users to create profiles by pulling personal details from existing social networks and highlighting interests, creating a portrait of themselves that goes beyond the skills featured on their resume. SkillCloud helps companies holistically track employee development to more fully understand their organizational DNA. Information aggregated in workers' SkillCloud profiles can be used to build teams with diverse, complementary skill sets allowing employees to engage in and execute projects in unexpected ways. By freeing employees to bring more than one dimension of their selves into the workplace, SkillCloud helps organizations build a more authentic, engaged workforce.
