Closing the Skills Gap with Skilldex®

Assessing the marketable skills of employees is critical in matching employees to new employment opportunities, as well as identifying training and other skill development needs. At EDSI, our process for assessing employee skills leverages our proprietary Skilldex system, developed from over 30 years of experience in workforce development and customized training.

Skilldex is a web-based system that surveys individual skills and identifies and catalogs the skill needs of employers - especially employers with a shortage of workers or a high demand for specific skills. We get everybody speaking the same language by developing task-based job profiles and evaluating applicants against specific skills, responsibilities and tasks. Skilldex matches employees or job seekers to employers, producing a job match report as well as a skills gap report identifying training and skill development needs. 

Equally important, Skilldex helps to identify training and development needs of current employees within an organization, helping both individuals and organizations reach their full potentials. Click here to download our Skilldex brochure.
