Are you struggling to keep up with the ever-evolving technological landscape and the skills needed to stay ahead of the curve? If so, then you won’t want to miss the latest episode of Status Go, hosted by Jeff Ton.
In this episode, Jeff is joined by Matthew Burrows, President of SkillsTX and a member of the SFIA Council, to discuss the skills needed in the information age. As technology continues to advance, the skills gap widens, and companies are finding it increasingly difficult to hire for tech-related jobs. But how do we determine the competency of our employees and shift to skills-based hiring when there’s no consensus on what to call some of the roles, let alone what skills are needed for them?
Join Jeff and Matthew as they explore how organizations can use the SFIA Framework to assess the skills and competencies of their workforce and identify areas for improvement. They’ll walk you through a typical SFIA assessment process and show you how it’s used to inform training and development plans. They’ll also discuss how the SFIA Framework accounts for emerging technologies and evolving IT skill requirements, making it a powerful tool for future-proofing your organization.
