retrain.ai is able to map the knowledge, personal attributes and qualifications currently available to the company
Spotted: As digital skill sets continue to evolve, the Israeli startup retrain.ai helps workers and employers make the most of forthcoming opportunities. An artificial intelligence-powered platform, retrain.ai identifies the skills a business needs to meet future industry demands. By analysing the skill set of current employees, the platform is able to map the knowledge, personal attributes and qualifications currently available to the company.
With that data, a business can better understand where gaps in expertise may lie as well as indicate employees who could be good matches for lateral, as well as vertical, promotions internally. Businesses can sign up to the platform for skills mapping, recruitment-match intelligence, talent transformation or a combination of the three, and can add and subtract functionality as needed.
In a recent round of funding, retrain.ai raised an additional €5.9 million for a current total of €20 million. Development plans are centred around expansion into the North American market and continued product development.
It’s been a while since workforce productivity featured heavily in innovation news, and as societies begin the transition into post-lockdown, hybrid-working arrangements, policies around employee engagement, wellbeing and productivity could become increasingly connected. From an app that collects anonymous compliments from colleagues to a wellbeing app focused on mental health, businesses understand the need for employee support and are exploring a range of customisable options.
