New Video Highlights Workcred’s Role in Fostering a More Integrated, Effective Credentialing System


05/13/2019

Workcred, an affiliate of the American National Standards Institute (ANSI), has unveiled a new video highlighting the challenges faced by employers, credentialing organizations, and education and training providers as new types of credentials flood the market.

From certificates and certifications to badges, superbadges, and MicroMasters, it is becoming more and more difficult for stakeholders to discern how credentials differ and how to tell a quality credential from one of little or no value.

The confusing and fragmented credentialing system is among the reasons businesses have trouble finding workers with the skills they need. While job seekers are investing in earning credentials, employers are often uncertain how to assess their quality, value, and effectiveness.

The video illustrates how Workcred is working to connect and educate stakeholders to create a more integrated and effective credentialing system through research, consulting, and educational activities.
