Adventure always awaits

Started in 2008, SkillsDB has worked with hundreds of companies and learned so much along the way. This experience comes together in a solution to elevate your employee success.

SkillsDB is a hub for employee success. It is the fastest, smartest and easiest path to competency-based talent management. Now, you can have data-backed insight into how your employees are performing, organizational strengths/weaknesses and report to management the findings. SkillsDB lets you track employee skills, run skills audits and gap analysis, find qualified people, analyze training needs, track individual development plans, manage certifications, career/succession planning and much more.

The original SkillsDB product was launched in 2008 by Steve Lieberman, who has spent almost 30 years building technical solutions to solve business problems. At first, a construction company asked him to build out a skills database. He found that there was no product on the market serving the purpose and realized there was something important in the making. The original product was a custom-built Microsoft Access database, but it quickly pivoted to an onsite, installable, stand-alone software product. After a short while, companies like Ernst & Young and UPS asked if there was a web version, which followed shortly thereafter.

In early 2022, Steve partnered with serial entrepreneur Josh Friedman as CEO to build and grow the business from its deep roots. Josh brought investment capital, vast experience growing meaningful customer-oriented cloud software companies and a penchant for driving growth. 

One of the many common bonds between Steve and Josh is the love for the outdoors. Both spend as much time as possible rock climbing, mountain biking, skiing and hiking. More importantly, they spend time with their wives and dogs, and in Josh's case, his children. Given their deep-rooted belief in the benefits of a life spent outdoors, you'll see a connection throughout the business. 

After all these years, one could say that SkillsDB is an expert in the PeopleOps space and is one of its leading cloud software platforms, creating a hub for employee success.
