HOUSTON—-Kahuna Workforce Solutions, a pioneer in operational skills and competency management software, has announced a momentous $21 million Series B funding round led by Resolve Growth Partners. This significant investment marks a pivotal milestone in Kahuna’s growth trajectory and underscores the escalating importance of skills management for industries that rely on skilled frontline workers.

Kahuna’s innovative platform empowers organizations to effectively manage, assess, and develop the skills of their frontline workforce, ensuring they possess the necessary competencies to excel in their roles. This, in turn, drives operational efficiency, enhances productivity, and fosters a more engaged and empowered workforce.

With the backing of Resolve Growth Partners, Kahuna is poised to further accelerate its growth and solidify its position as the industry leader in skills management solutions for technical frontline workforces. The company plans to utilize the funding to expand its product offerings, enhance its go-to-market strategy, and expand its global footprint.

Kahuna’s customer base of leading Fortune 500 energy, manufacturing, and field service organizations, and world-renowned healthcare systems, is a testament to the platform’s scalability and robustness in meeting the rigorous demands of complex operational needs. The flagship skills management platform digitizes granular skills data, removing the burden that often comes with tracking skills manually in Excel spreadsheets or a traditional HRIS. Organizations can dynamically track skills, identify and analyze skills gaps, and provide targeted development opportunities whether at the bedside, in the field, or on the plant floor.

Kahuna plans to use the growth funding strategically to accelerate and enhance product development and innovation; expand its team by adding key roles across sales and marketing, product development, customer success, and engineering; and increase operational capabilities to continue supporting global customers as they adopt skills-based strategies to achieve operational excellence.
