Abodoo Provides Skills Mapping Service For Cork County, Ireland.
Cork County Council has launched its Activating County Towns initiative (ACT). Part of the initiative is to map the skills in Cork County in collaboration with Abodoo. The aim of the service is to develop ongoing live skills mapping for the County, aligning Cork’s growing international business profile with the talent the County has to offer. The initiative will see Abodoo leverage its technology to identify the skills that exist within the County, and enable greater investment in areas that will attract jobs.
The Talent Mapping Technology will provide ongoing anonymized data analysis of the skills in Cork County, both for persons residing there, as well as the diaspora, and persons wishing to relocate. The data provided to the County will not include any personally identifiable information, it will capture key data points such as skills and location. Those who sign up opt to allow employers to contact them directly.
Abodoo has sought to develop a constructive, long term relationship with local governments, working closely with them to help them identify the skills in their areas and to ultimately ensure that they are best placed to take advantage of the opportunities ahead in the changing economic climate. With challenges such as climate change, and the need for regional rejuvenation, Abodoo sees Smart Working as the new normal, something companies and governments should embrace. The growing importance of digital hubs as a means of spurring economic growth is a testament to this fact.
Abodoo captures over 50,000 skills and is meant to help organizations identify their current and future talent, helping them better identify the talent they wish to attract and to be more informed about where they can start hiring more people if they wish to do so. The initial stages of the project will include an education and awareness campaign in digital and social media.
