"Promoting that individuals have the appropriate
job training and qualifications."

Powerful Solution

How we started?
The construction industry was to undertake the implementation of a portable 'skills card' system, where the worker would share their training skill sets when onboarded with a new employer and be able to take them to the next employer when looking for further work. However, the major feasibility study finding at the time was that the available technology was too expensive to implement.
While workXid has met the initial 'skills card' scope, we continue to expand our workforce identity service environment with more features that will help numerous industry sectors and employers. workXid not only shows employers that you possess the necessary qualifications and knowledge. Many employers have taken advantage of our workXid features for site access control, to record training, monitor attendance and establish private employee communication channels.
The main reason for introducing a skills card was to improve the health and safety aspects of workers. The skills card concept is nothing new. In the late 1990s, the Canadian construction industry sought a solution to address the log jam produced by processing workers. As a result, a skills card committee comprised of construction industry leaders/influencers with equal representation of labour and management was formulated.
That committee was tasked to find new technologies that would reduce time and money when onboarding workers to a job site while maintaining the mandate of compliance and due diligence. The committee invested over two years and completed a feasibility study. The study outlined the key technologies and directions for developing a 'skills card' program.
Available technology was too expensive to implement … We've fixed that … workXid has built an innovative, cost effective, cloud-based, portable credentialing system for construction and other industries
