Winners were determined by a Lighthouse panel of judges composed of practitioners, consultants, and educators who evaluated demos and case studies of HR technology providers across the globe. Past winners of Lighthouse’s award include Cornerstone, ADP, and Degreed.

“The SkyHive Human Capital Operating System is a brilliant, exciting approach to human skill analysis and development,” says Ben Eubanks, Chief Research Officer, Lighthouse Research & Advisory. “With more employers exploring a skills-based approach to talent, SkyHive is poised to deliver value through its patented and proven approach.”
