Managements and HR professionals are recognizing that while their organizations are going digital, traditional training methods still permeate. With employees changing positions more frequently (the average tenure for a Millennial in one job is less than 3.5 years) and existing team members’ growing roles, there is a need to adopt training and skilling methodology that is more agile and contextual to support the digital employee experience.

In the current scenario the solutions and services by the Human Capital Management and Skill Development Companies/ platforms are a blessing. Below are the companies that are easing HRs dilemma in getting the right mix of technology and services to optimize their hiring:
