An effective training program can help employees stay up to date with the latest industry trends, skills and best practices, leading to better performance, increased customer satisfaction, and higher productivity.

Research firm IDC says that organizations stand to benefit up to $1 trillion in productivity gains worldwide in the next two years by implementing skills development that’s powered by generative AI and automation.

That’s where Skillsoft’s CAISYTM for You service is poised to help organizations.

With CAISYTM for You, organizations partner with Skillsoft to create customized, AI-driven coaching scenarios that blend practice and role modeling to help employees develop critical communication skills.

CAISYTM makes crucial conversations easier by providing employees with a safe space to practice and receive real-time feedback. Through experiential learning like this, organizations can prepare their talent to drive sustainable change through behaviors and actions. And now, they can further customize the tool to their culture, needs, and more.

How It Works: Skillsoft’s CAISY for You

Skillsoft’s CAISYTM for You service is designed to meet the specific needs of the organization and its employees. Experiential, active learning addresses the unique challenges and strategic goals of the organization. After training, learners feel more confident in applying their new skills to their daily interactions, tasks, and projects.

Skillsoft partners with organizations to tailor CAISY to their specific needs. Here are the steps to roll it out:

  • Design — Work with Skillsoft’s Professional Services team to define outcomes and learning objectives.
  • Build — Then, build a beta version. Stress test it and make sure the scenarios meet expectations.
  • Launch — Finally, partner with Skillsoft to deliver it to your organizations.

The idea is that CAISY should speak the language of the industry, simulate highly realistic scenarios, and relate to the person’s role within the organization.

That’s why CAISYTM is so effective.

It’s dynamic, adaptable and driven by AI — allowing it to mold to the distinct use cases of every industry, organization, and employee.

Skillsoft’s Professional Services team collects feedback from learning administrators, talent development leaders, department heads and others to dial in the scenarios. The data they collect — topics, phrases, methods and more — is used to train employees, prepare them for future interactions, and help them understand their potential.

The experience becomes highly relevant to each employee. CAISYTM helps learners with their unique skill set, offers recommendations and analysis, and allows virtually endless repetition. For the organization, it’s cost effective by cutting out unnecessary materials or training you’d get with off-the-shelf solutions. What’s more, it leads to a more confident, emotionally intelligence workforce.
