In today's economy, companies are taking a closer look at the best ways to upskill their workforce and provide lasting job security and satisfaction to their employees. On the heels of the Great Resignation and the emergence of quiet quitting into the national lexicon, organizations are seeking the tools that will empower their staff to be more productive, effective, and successful in their jobs. This Startup is Changing The Landscape of Training and Retaining TalentPixabay "In the workforce today, as more jobs become remote there is this underlying sense of isolation, which contributes to a lack of connection. People are feeling out of touch with their employer and colleagues. It's now more important than ever to show them that as a company you care" explains Practis Head of Growth, Catia Pecoraro. "Practis not only helps a company's bottom line, but also the overall morale and workplace culture. Showing your employees that you are invested in their growth, by giving them the tools and resources they need to improve, is how you're going to attract and retain the talent your organization needs to succeed." Practis functions as a professional language learning platform, allowing leaders to capture and curate their company's messaging to ensure that everyone within their team achieves fluency. This mobile training software can be shared instantly with every employee, at once – whether it's a company of 10 people or thousands across different time zones. Practis allows learners to transfer knowledge and tactics into conversation through their patented AI customer interaction simulator. "With traditional training, you learn something that may or may not be relevant to your day to day. What you rarely get is the opportunity to take what you just learned and immediately apply it to your job" Pecoraro says. "With Practis, we are accelerating people's growth and speed to proficiency by giving them a virtual partner to practice with. They are able to learn the language of their company and by doing so they gain confidence in their ability to navigate any conversation." This technological breakthrough has already helped companies dramatically improve the performance gaps that exist within their organization, but it has other applications as well. Practis helps field agents and technicians leverage their subject-matter expertise to speak with customers about different ways their company can serve them. "In industries like home services, a large percentage of the workforce are service technicians that go out into the field and serve a customer's needs," Pecoraro says. "By training them to apply their subject-matter expertise in the moment and up-serve existing customers, you give them this wonderful opportunity to earn more money while enhancing their skills and abilities." Companies are discovering in today's marketplace that with the right training tools and resources in place, they can retain the best talent while accelerating growth across their entire team. Practis enables these businesses to help their team get better, create a more productive work environment, and increase their sales and revenue. "While the skills gap continues to grow, companies are faced with a unique opportunity. They can continue to do what they've always done, further widening the gap, or shift to the needs of their multi-generational workforce. Investing in their existing talent is not only good for the health of their business but also the health and well-being of their employees." Pecoraro says. To learn more about Practis, visit .
