Unleash Human Potential

SkyHive drives global reskilling initiatives, creating a more inclusive economy where skills become pathways to success.

Helping companies and communities work together by focusing on people's skills instead of just their jobs.

Assess the skills you have today, the skills you need to achieve your goals, where the gaps are, and how to fill them.

Our vision

Our vision is to reskill the world. Our mission is to organize the world's workforce data.

Our purpose

We've built the world's first and only Human Capital Operating System™ to optimize the world's transition from jobs-based to skills-based. Essential to workforce transformation, SkyHive's Human Capital Operating System complements any existing people technology by injecting a 'system of intelligence' to inform and enhance the entire cycle of hiring, training and retaining workers and learners. We automate and illuminate the reskilling journey from start-to-finish, providing clients with a capable, future-ready workforce. Ultimately, we close skills gaps with speed and efficiency, unleashing human potential for individuals and across companies and communities worldwide.

Hear first-hand from our employees, partners, and clients

Guided by its mission, SkyHive drives positive social impact globally while delivering value end-to-end for all stakeholders. With the support of our team, partners, and customers, we continue to make tremendous progress in our efforts to reskill the world, at a time when it is greatly needed.

– Sean Hinton,

Founder and CEO

“Current talent analytics platforms lack the external market data necessary to provide benchmarks against internal findings. SkyHive automates skills detection, forecasts skills evolution and provides learning program recommendations that can reduce skills gaps or support career movement.”

“This partnership will allow us to leverage SkyHive’s advanced skills matching algorithm to more accurately represent the skills STARs earn through previous experience and training, as well as skills needed for jobs at many levels and across many industries. Together, we are looking beyond the traditional job title to help employers hire for potential instead of pedigree.”
