When it comes to employees, organizations need to remember the various levels of learning of individuals in the workforce and offer reskilling to their employees in effort to keep up with changing technology and culture. Taxonomies can help. This interesting topic came to us from ATD Education in their article, “Putting Taxonomies to Work: Skills Tagging for Deep Capability Building and Experiential Learning.”

A taxonomy informs the business of learning by identifying things, challenges, and opportunities. With both hard skills and human skills, it can categorize and classify the appropriate response to a situation.

A controlled vocabulary is needed to ensure that machine-assisted or fully automated indexing is comprehensive of the subject, regardless of that subject. Access Innovations is one of a very small number of companies able to help its clients generate ANSI/ISO/W3C-compliant taxonomies and make information findable. Whether it’s an upgrade of an existing taxonomy or one created one from scratch, we work with clients on a taxonomy and thesaurus meeting the organization’s needs.
