SAN FRANCISCO–(BUSINESS WIRE)–#HRTech–Hitch, the award-winning skills intelligence and internal talent mobility platform for the future of work, today announced The Hitch.Graph Magnet Group / Skills Intelligence Accelerator. The program is designed to help companies manage their current and future talent assets and create a more modern job and skills architecture to adapt to the ever-changing market conditions. This unique cohort marries some of the brightest minds focused on the workforce of tomorrow, with the most dynamic and powerful data-driven technology, to help companies committed to skills-based work. Participating companies will have extraordinary access to industry luminaries such as Gary Bolles, Chair for the Future of Work for Singularity University and author of The Next Rules Of Work, and Josh Bersin, Global Industry Analyst.
Program participants will be limited to a small number and will have access to the recently announced Hitch.Graph, a skills intelligence technology that dynamically connects and updates data based on unbiased artificial intelligence by processing hundreds of millions of public and proprietary data. The platform creates equitable access to opportunities and is proven and trusted by global enterprise customers such as Bosch, Dolby, HERE Technologies and more.
The Skills Intelligence Accelerator is a six-month program composed of general sessions plus several custom enterprise workshops each month. At the conclusion of the program, each participant will have developed a solid skills-based work strategy, a customized career architecture report highlighting their organization’s skills capabilities, as well as access to the Hitch skills intelligence and internal talent mobility platform.
Collectively, the group will co-create a blueprint for a skills-based work strategy designed to address the rapidly changing workforce including the intense competition for talent among a remote, dispersed workforce. Throughout the program, Hitch will share best practices and ideas generated by the cohort and publish them via LinkedIn and Twitter using #SkillsIntelligence.
“Demand for talent has never been higher and the last year has only accelerated changes to the workforce,” said Kelley Steven-Waiss, Founder and CEO, Hitch. “There is no playbook for operating in these times so Hitch has convened a provocative group of strategic thinkers to innovate and solve for today’s workplace challenges.”
Joining Bolles and Bersin are Mandy Bynum Mc Laughlin, Chief Executive Officer, Co-founder, Race Equ(al)ity Project and Charlene Li, bestselling author of The Disruption Mindset and a digital transformation and disruption expert.
