employee skilling

Amsterdam, 04 August, 2021 — Leading outplacement and career mobility provider Randstad RiseSmart today announced a new collaboration with learning provider GoodHabitz in Europe, adding 3,000+ courses in eight local languages to its already extensive skilling solution.

Adding an additional learning provider to its skilling solution, next to established partners like Udemy and LinkedIn Learning, ensures the best learning experience for individuals impacted by workforce restructuring or participating in a career development or redeployment programme based in Europe. RiseSmart is now better positioned to offer individuals a customised skilling experience in eight, soon to be 10, different languages, allowing more learning opportunities and giving individuals more control of their career paths.

“By adding GoodHabitz to our skilling solution, we bring more diversity in training to both blue- and white-collar workers, unlocking their potential by adding thousands of additional learning courses to our existing list,” said Arco Elsman, managing director, Randstad RiseSmart Europe. “Continued learning ensures that employees have the right skills to support sustainable, future-fit careers. We are always eager to invest in new partners and technology to help our customers overcome skills gaps and support a futureproof workforce.”

According to the latest ‘Skilling Today’ report by Randstad RiseSmart, most employers view ongoing skilling as imperative to maintaining a competitive edge. The report also found that the top three skills European employers want their workers to learn in the near future are: communication (36%), adaptability (36%), collaboration (27%).

GoodHabitz offers a variety of courses that will empower employees and help them learn in-demand skills. Investing in skilling and consequently supporting internal talent mobility within an organisation has many other benefits.

“Empowering employees to learn new skills and redeploying talent instead of letting them go is more cost effective than hiring new talent and can help drive employee engagement and retention,” said Elsman. “Another advantage is that by developing skills internally, organisations can avoid challenges related to competing for scarce, outside talent with relevant skills. Given how quickly in-demand skills and business needs are evolving, organisations in Europe need to prioritize investing in reskilling and upskilling their workforce more than ever before.”
