SkillsInZicht is an innovative platform with which Etil makes detailed information available and transparent regarding the current demand for skills. This allows policymakers, employers, educational institutions, job seekers and students to start developing their current or desired skillset. Where traditional labour market analysis is based on professions, this approach looks at what people actually know, can do and are doing.
Using semantic analysis based on AI techniques (natural language processing), we analyse all online vacancy texts published in the Netherlands. We cluster the results according to the European ESCO classification of skills and professions. Based on this sourcing system, we develop a number of modules for employees and employers, and dashboards with insights for policymakers.
Employees can use the module to link the skills in their resume to suitable professions, including information about which employers are looking for these skill profiles. Similarly, employers can search for suitable skill profiles to facilitate recruitement using their own vacancies and vacancy texts. All modules can also be integrated into your own systems or workflow for recruitment, internal mobility or training programs.
To assist policymakers, we transform skills data into policy information, sorted by regional level, occupational group and skills cluster. Here too, we can analyse data to provide you with deeper insights into the skills that are required by businesses in your region.
What are the benefits?
Insights into what people (should) know, can do and are doing. A method that offers the possibility to delve much deeper into labour market dynamics than classical analyses of supply and demand at the level of professions.
