Guild unveiled Priority Pathways and Talent Development Analytics, two new product capabilities designed to help employees advance within their company.
Guild says it launched the features at a time when career mobility has become necessary to help employers close skills gaps and remain competitive in today’s labor market.
The capabilities synthesize labor market analytics and employer specific metrics to create skills-based pathways that deliver “comprehensive and resilient workforce outcomes,” Guild said. Priority Pathways offer curated career pathways across the highest-demand job groups, while Talent Development Analytics allows employers to follow their workers’ learning. Together, Guild said, the features will help both employers and employees create connections between business priorities and the skills, interests and career aspirations of employees.
“Priority Pathways and Talent Development Analytics promote cultures of opportunity where employees feel valued and invested in the success of their employer, and companies benefit from highly-motivated and competitive workforces,” said Dean Carter, Guild’s chief people and purpose officer.
Meeting Future Needs
Guild has developed 16 Priority Pathways to outline the career steps and credentialed learning that can help employees advance their careers while meeting their employer’s future talent needs. They cover the highest demand job groups, Guild said, spanning data analytics, nursing, supply chain, finance, software engineering, cybersecurity and others. The pathways cover 75% of most employers’ priority hiring needs, the company said.
Talent Development Analytics offers dashboard visualization to employers’ Priority Pathways and strengthens their effectiveness by providing employers with end-to-end data insights on their talent pipelines. This includes highlighting key trends for employers such as program enrollment, program discipline alignment, and program progression.
The data provides HR with the information it needs to leverage internal talent for in-demand roles and helps ensure learners get connected to with the right opportunities, Guild said. It also allows employers to measure the impact and effectiveness of their talent strategies.
