New Eightfold Module Aims to Tie Employee Development to Strategy

Eightfold Career Hub

Eightfold AI added a new module, Career Hub, to its talent management platform. The product is designed to give both HR and employees more flexibility in their approach to development by providing intelligence and advice within a single platform.

To accomplish this, the platform leverages AI, multiple data sources and matching algorithms in a comprehensive user experience. Eightfold’s underlying global data helps the system consider the availability, maturity, relevance, learnability and evolution of skills in the global market, which in turn helps companies to be specific with their upskilling and reskilling programs, the company said.

Eightfold said Career Hub is meant to help CHROs is to align business objectives with the career goals of employees. ”As remote and hybrid work environments become the norm, HR business leaders require deep insight into the capabilities of their entire workforce,” the company said.

Career Hub’s Features

The Career Hub is available in 15 languages and can address the needs of both full time and contingent workers. Among other things, it helps employees:

  • Keep profiles current by automatically updating them through integration with collaboration tools, task management systems, project management suites and other legacy systems.
  • Chart their career path within the flow of day-to-day work, and discover in-house opportunities to learn new skills and capabilities.
  • Develop new capabilities with real-world projects in a talent marketplace that delivers experiential learning.
  • Work directly with recommended mentors and peer programs.

Eightfold AI CEO Ashutosh Garg observed that employees today seek out organizations who’ll invest in their long-term success. “They can’t be asked to go to five different places, or rely on a simple talent marketplace, to accomplish their goals,” he said. Eightfold set out “to solve this exact problem, and the result is a scalable AI platform that puts career development and growth front and center for each employee.”

In January Eightfold and contingent workforce management platform PRO Unlimited announced an agreement under which PRO will embed Eightfold’s technology. The companies said the combination of Eightfold’s talent intelligence capabilities with PRO’s data and technical tools will help Global 2000 companies better identify, engage and secure contingent workers anywhere in the world.
