Gloat, the global leader in Workforce Agility, today announced the launch of Skills Landscape, a powerful platform enhancement that enables organizations to upskill at speed and scale by giving every employee skill-based guidance on how to reach their career goals. As organizations make critical workforce decisions like establishing job requirements and identifying skill priorities, Skills Landscape captures and analyzes each decision and translates it into actionable recommendations for every employee — bridging the gap between workforce planning and execution. With a personalized view of how skills measure up to company expectations, market trends, and manager recommendations, employees gain visibility to action plans that account for both their career development and the business’s evolving needs.
- Setting Development Goals – Each employee will have access to a personalized Skills Landscape within the Development section of their Talent Marketplace. They will be able to benchmark their skills against their role, industry, and managerial expectations, receiving recommendations on how to adjust their development plans via upskilling tracks.
- Career Planning – As employees explore different career paths and roles within their organization, they can view Skills Landscape to assess how their skills compare to the requirements of any open role in the organization, and see the next steps they can take to improve their qualifications for any role.
- Team Management – With Skills Landscape activated in the “My Team” section of the Talent Marketplace, managers get a detailed view into the skill set of their team at the individual and team level. With these insights, they can then better understand the skill strengths and gaps across their team to inform upskilling and hiring needs.
The first AI-enabled software tool to interrupt biases in written job performance feedback has been released by Textio, the pioneer in augmented writing solutions for the entire employment lifecycle. The new product, Textio for performance feedback, provides real-time coaching for managers writing employee feedback to make certain that feedback is effective and fair, and identifies and replaces language that could be biased based on race, gender and/or age.
The new product uses Textio’s pioneering AI and language science to provide guidance for anyone writing workplace feedback, ensuring that every employee across the organization receives high-quality performance feedback every time. Textio uncovers patterns of inequity in feedback across department and demographic groups and surfaces these inequities to DEIB leaders. Teams that use Textio to write feedback see in-line nudges that interrupt bias in real-time, empowering managers and peers to give direct, specific and actionable feedback consistently.
