When we say SkillCycle is built by HR, for HR, we mean it. SkillCycle was founded from the frustrations of HR veterans who had enough of the way companies treat their people – and, more than that, how companies treat their HR departments. HR now has more direct reports than a CEO; meanwhile, your workload isn’t getting any lighter and expectations haven’t changed. We’d love to show you how SkillCycle can significantly improve your day-to-day while also giving your people a robust talent development platform they’ll love.
Reach out to us today and let us show you how you can drive worklife success for your people and business results for your company.
How often do we sign on for a position that offers coaching as a benefit, only to find that it’s only offered to managers and up? Coaching platforms that prioritize people who are already leaders leave no space for identifying future leaders, or encouraging growth for people who may not be leaders but are valued individual contributors. Just because someone isn’t an executive doesn’t mean their upskilling can’t help them to help your organization meet business goals!
These “coaching” platforms are simply a space for employees to log into for a venting session when they’re having a work-related crisis. While a coach might provide guidance in that moment, these platforms are not tied to skillbuilding or true solution-driven learning & development.
Some coaching providers position themselves as mental health professionals and accredited career coaches. While we’re firm believers in both, coaching and skillbuilding are enormously different from therapy or mental health counseling. Addressing mental health issues that come up because of work does not address the crux of the problem: skills gaps, unmet goals, or unclear performance reviews that are causing said mental health issues.
Not all platforms understand the importance of coach continuity or the value (and, let’s face it, ROI) that comes with learners being able to select their own coaches. During your trial, you'll have access to our coaching marketplace to see how our learner-first platform creates positive behavior change that lasts,
Our coaching platform has never been exclusive to executives only (though we do have executive coaches for those who would like to work with them). We believe that growth for any individual contributes to the growth of the business, and ensure that our coaches can work with anyone at any point in their professional journey.
SkillCycle’s coaches’ goals are to help develop and grow their learners’ strengths to handle a work-related crisis themselves, building an individualized toolkit each learner can turn to not only in that moment, but to use before a crisis. The more we empower your employees to grow, develop new skills, and lean into learning & development, the more effective they will be in handling these challenges as – or before – they surface.
We tackle the issue at its root. With about one-third of our lives spent at work, the effect of our worklife on our mental health isn’t one to be ignored. But instead of treating the symptoms of work-related struggles, our coach community works with your employees to get to the root cause: developing soft and hard skills to help meet those struggles and conquer them before they become overpowering.
