Build a highly effective federal government by improving the skills of your workforce
There are many talent challenges today in the federal government, which is to be expected from a workforce that is broad and diverse. With an aging workforce, siloed work environments, differing expectations between generations, the disproportionately small segment of Millennials compared to the overall U.S. workforce, and changes in the way today’s workers learn, understanding and leveraging evolving trends in learning and development will be central to overcoming all elements of the federal government’s succession planning challenges.
Access for All
Over 14 percent, or 260,000 employees, in the federal workforce have a disability. We believe that everyone has the right to access our content and learning platforms. We believe this is a basic human right for people regardless of their abilities.
Accessibility is more than simply offering alt text for images and transcripts for videos. It is the bringing together of several components including: developers, authoring tools, users, web browsers, and evaluation tools and using a holistic approach to create content that everyone can access. For us, it simply means access for all.
Skillsoft is the first learning company to achieve Federal Risk and Authorization Management Program (FedRAMP) compliance, a government-wide program that provides a standardized approach to security assessment, authorization, and continuous monitoring for cloud products and services.
FedRAMP’s approach saves an estimated 30-40 percent of government costs, as well as both time and staff required to conduct regular agency security assessments. FedRAMP evaluates cloud providers through a comprehensive, three-step process. The framework is based on a uniform set of standards to determine if a cloud product or service has adequate information security controls.
