The joint solution empowers employees to develop their own career paths and related skills to help them achieve their selected goals.

The partnership integrates Eightfold's Talent Intelligence Platform, a solution that uses deep-learning algorithms to provide career planning recommendations for each employee, with EdCast's Learning Experience Platform, which uses AI to identify and curate learning content within an organization, organizing it based on many factors including skills and certifications. The joint solution gives employees the ability to discover the skills they should gain for their short-term and long-term goals and access the content that will help them develop those skills.

The Eightfold.ai and EdCast partnership addresses critical needs within the modern workforce:

Defined career path. According to the Eightfold Talent Intelligence and Management Report 2019-2020, 68 percent of surveyed U.S. employees say their employers don't fully recognize their potential, and 64 percent of employees said they would be more motivated if they had a clearer career path. Yet, 75 percent of their CHROs and CEOs in the U.S. say internal mobility is a key focus. According to the study, most businesses haven't delivered successfully on their desire to provide mobility for their employees, providing a gap that Eightfold.ai and EdCast can fill.

Personalized corporate education. The growth in distributed work, more than just remote work, is a trend of many years that is now accelerated by the COVID-19 pandemic. Employees need access to relevant information at the right time, at their own pace, and in a self-service manner.

Lifelong training. In order to upskill and reskill, employees need training not only when they onboard, but also throughout their career at a given company and beyond. Distributed organizations typically face challenges in employee development, especially during an era of remote-first working.
