In today’s rapidly evolving job market, traditional hiring practices that focus solely on academic degrees are becoming outdated. 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.
Compliance is only one piece of the puzzle, although a crucial one. Companies must provide their employees, both able-bodied and disabled, with access to career development opportunities as well as reasonable workplace accommodations.
