There is quite some buzz about micro-credentials and badges as a means to acknowledge skills, foster portability of skills across jobs, and hence, to facilitate professional careers in a dynamic context. However, practical applications are still rare. In this workshop, Grupo Santander’s learning experts will showcase their skill badge initiative. The Santander Badge System links talent with business challenges and aligns personal interests with the organisation’s strategic objectives. A system of interconnected and levelled badges allows to certify employees’ skills and to boost their careers to the next level.
But the key to success is the employee him- or herself. This system puts the learner at the center by stimulating their curiosity and responsibility, giving them the freedom to make decisions, guiding them and helping them to set their own goals. Badges are a recognition of their skills, becoming the currency to facilitate mobility opportunities and to improve their employability and professional growth.
Participants will have the opportunity to share their views and experience in breakout groups. This workshop is by invitation only and open to corporate learning and development practitioners from member companies and invited guests.
