This podcast is a conversation between Joyce Maroney, former Executive Director of the Workforce Institute and board member John Hollon and part of the series of podcasts we’re hosting on key ideas from our most recently published book, Being Present: A Practical Guide for Transforming the Employee Experience of Your Frontline Workforce. Here, John shares his advice for identifying and developing transferable skills.
John Hollon is a long time Workforce Institute board member as well as an award-winning journalist and nationally recognized expert on leadership, talent management, and smart workforce practices. John’s chapter in our book is entitled Rethinking Frontline Hiring With An Eye Towards Transferable Skills. In his chapter, he talks about the importance of hiring and developing workers based on broader analyses of their skills and their opportunities for growth.
I hope you take the opportunity to listen in on this conversation below.
