Competencies: Business (Behavioral)
Workplace Application:
Attendees will learn how interoperable, verifiable digital credentials can be used in hiring and development processes to empower employees and employers with a more complete and transparent understanding of people’s talents and competencies. 

Rapidly evolving technologies for digital, verifiable learning, employment, and competencies records are unlocking new opportunities for understanding and evaluating what people know and can do. Interoperable learning and employment records (LERs) in digital wallets enable people to collect credentials from numerous diverse sources to document their full range of abilities, from degrees and certifications to specific competencies and responsibilities. Open standards such as the Credential Transparency Description Language (CTDL) and W3C Verifiable Credentials provide shared data structures for reliable human- and machine-readable credentials. Learn from leading developers of LERs and wallets how these technologies are streamlining HR processes through instant verifications, empowering skills-based, equitable hiring, and revealing hidden talent.

Learning Objectives:

  • Learn how to use HR information systems and business technology to solve problems related to skills-based hiring and talent development.
  • Learn how to apply data-driven knowledge and best practices to hiring decisions.
  • Learn how to use technology to support effective and efficient approaches to sourcing and recruiting employees.

In-person session offerings are on a first-come, first-served basis.
