Understanding the Initiative

Employers who want to grow and stay competitive in today's marketplace, embrace skills as a key element of their recruitment practices. 

At the heart of the Alabama Trailblazer initiative lies a commitment to skills-based hiring. Relying solely on credentials or degrees limit access to quality talent.
