IT, HR and the Value of Certification in Both Fields

Posted by Jackie Berdy on Oct 16, 2018 12:36:12 PM

Technology

To state the obvious, information technology has impacted our lives both professionally and personally in ways that only the most forward thinking of us ever imagined. It’s not a stretch to say that virtually every company relies on technology for their business even if it’s only for email, a website or billing.

Like technology, HR is foundational in some way, shape or form in every company. Even small companies, which might farm out HR functions to employers associations or other entities, have elements of HR, such as hiring, payroll, and benefits, at their core. As companies grow, both the IT and HR functions play an increasingly impactful role.

Cliff's Stand-Up: Enterprise Mindset

Posted by Cliff Audinet on Aug 29, 2018 10:27:52 AM

Success can be measured in many ways. Money, power, property, family, the company you keep, your career, and maybe your golf score... well, not my golf score. Success in a small or midsize business, however, is not always as clearly defined.

So how do you raise the probability of succeeding, keep the wheels on the tracks and continue to grow market share and revenue?

Employee Training for the Win-Win

The Benefit that Empowers Employees

 

Rapid shifts in technology, labor markets, and the overall global economic environment have all impacted the employment experience in recent years. When youth unemployment hit crisis levels in 2012, approaching 20% in some of the world’s largest states and over 50% in some other well-established economies, the debate over how jobs match up with employee skill sets became urgent. Some business initiatives began to try to define the skill set of the future, committing energy towards a kind of educational specialization that would help supply, in employment terms, meet demand.

Product Feature Spotlight: Flex Key

Posted by Christine Avery on Jun 12, 2018 9:59:48 AM

 

Xvoucher is excited to announce the release of our newest product feature: Flex Key.

 

What is Flex Key?

Flex Key is an innovative new feature for the Xvoucher platform. Up until now, providing options to your learning candidates was a multi-step process; you could create as many distinct learning bundles as you wanted, but choices within those bundles were limited. With Flex Key, our customers will be able to create learning product bundles in which one or more of the items can be a choice for their candidates. Enabling this feature allows for an easier and faster set up by only needing to create one bundle of learning products with the choice for multiple different complementary exams(or other learning products). With Flex Key, the possibilities for creating and selling your learning become endless.

Education & Success

Posted by Cherie McInturff on May 30, 2018 5:34:00 PM

The Education Pathway to Economic Well-Being

 

Education is traditionally linked to individual success in life, particularly an individual’s chances for achieving wealth and prosperity. Higher education results in more skill and knowledge to secure higher income. Recent shifts in labor markets—to include greater participation from more countries, producing more international competition—have also supported that view. As advanced economies encountered new competition from regions like South America, Eastern Europe, and Asia—it emerged clearly that the most successful were more educated, workers educated up to and in some cases, well beyond Western standards.

The State of Certifications and the Rise of Skill Demand

 

Employer demand for specialized skills has been on the rise in recent years. At a research workshop held by the National Academy of Sciences in 2008, labor economists reflected on job growth in what they defined as the “high-wage professional, technical, and managerial” sector. In labor market terms, they identified skill demand as a feature of workplaces moved to develop in tandem with changes in technology. The panelists also pointed to policies and trends intended to upgrade skills in low-wage service jobs and techno service work.
