After a combined 20+ years working in HR, SkillCycle’s future CEO Kristy McCann Flynn sat down with future CCO Rebecca Taylor over homemade ice cream at a NY steakhouse and, ready to flip the script (or tear it to pieces in frustration), decided to build a tech platform that actually answered the problems that HR and organizations were running into time & time again. With their deep insight into HR pain points, knowing as buyers what types of platforms weren’t working and why, they built SkillCycle (then GoCoach) as an answer to those repeated frustrations.
Built by HR for HR, SkillCycle’s all-in-one tech delivers a seamless platform for companies that helps solve greater organizational challenges, builds stronger teams, and resets the way we all measure business success.
