At this year’s HR Technology conference last month, Skillsoft announced its upcoming release of Winter 2016 Talent Expansion®. The new product makes it easier than ever for organizations to overcome challenges with engagement, retention, and agility through solutions that empower individuals with access to continuous development opportunities and visibility to pursue career mobility.
