A Skill-Based Approach to Productivity and Wellbeing to Building Stronger, More Engaged Employees (On Demand)

If your company spent the past year focused more on remote work policies than employee development, you’re certainly not alone. 

According to Degreed’s State of Skills 2021 report – 50% of workers say that their employers reduced skill building opportunities during the pandemic. 

When it comes to increasing employees’ skills – there’s no such thing as just coasting. You’re either growing or you’re missing out on valuable new skills that will help your organization succeed. 

That’s not all – 55% of workers say that as their confidence in their skills decreases, their stress levels increase.   

And those stress increases come with other increases – to your people costs – like productivity, attendance, and turnover. 

You need to turn this around before your team (and your company) burns out. 

Join us to learn: 

  • How to proactively develop a skills strategy that empowers and advances your team 
  • Best practices for building buy-in with other leaders across your organization 
  • Practical insights for your team on running a skills-based strategy
