Recognizing this shift, the SHRM Foundation, in collaboration with the Charles Koch Foundation, has announced an exciting new partnership and the launch of the “Ready for Success: Adopting a Skills Mindset in Employment Practices” toolkit. This alliance aims to equip employers with the necessary tools and training to embrace skills-based hiring and navigate the emerging skills-based economy.

It covers topics such as technology, training, work/life balance, retirement benefits, communication, and employee benefits.
