Strategies For Upskilling Your Workforce in a Changing World (On Demand)

When, where and how we work is being totally transformed. Now more than ever, business leaders have a responsibility to refocus their workforce strategy on upskilling and talent mobility, creating the right environment that supports this new work reality.

This Personnel Today webinar in association with Degreed looks at how work is fundamentally changing. Some companies have begun incorporating technology, automation, and artificial intelligence into routine job tasks. As this increases over the next few years, many jobs will become unrecognisable or redundant.

Ultimately though, new jobs will be invented and most are going to evolve to include new skills and responsibilities. Unfortunately, more than 70% of companies still rely on old thinking and use work methods and processes for a world that no longer exists.

Degreed’s chief learning officer Kelly Palmer and Darren Bartlett, global capability director for Imperial Brands, join Personnel Today editor Rob Moss to discuss “future-ready” strategies and a framework for creating a better employee experience that helps organisations and individuals thrive.

Watch this 60-minute webinar to find out what organisations can be doing differently, including:

  • How people at all levels need to reimagine work, jobs and careers
  • How companies need to create environments and experiences to support this
  • How to replace old methods and thinking so your workforce stays agile
  • And how to use data to identify the skills you need for your organisation to be competitive.
