why attend

It’s time to stop talking about the future of work.
It’s already here.

Now, everyone learns from a diversity of sources for the entirety of our careers. And that changes everything.

Careers last for 60 or 70 years, yet jobs are being automated, outsourced and disrupted every day. Skills have useful lives of just a few years, even though everyone can learn anything, anywhere. And while you’re struggling to engage the talent your business needs right now, your workforce is getting themselves ready for what’s next. Welcome to the expertise economy.

So what are you doing about it? For starters, join us at Degreed LENS. Together with you, and some of the most creative pioneers in learning and talent development, we’ll explore the latest, greatest approaches to building, rebuilding, finding, sharing, and using the expertise that you—and your people—want.

WHAT TO LOOK FORWARD TO AT LENS CHICAGO
