Rethinking skills and talent strategies

London |
Speakers include:

Overview

Big data, intelligent software and the Internet of Things are all fundamental forces impacting the world of work today. The increased connectivity available provides more flexibility than ever in where employees work and what devices and applications are being used to complete tasks. For policy makers, business leaders, and workers themselves, these shifts create uncertainty. While there has been much activity around digital transformation in labour markets, organisations efforts to reskill and reorganise around these changes have been slow. In order to create a robust and inclusive world of work, businesses, government and civil societies will need to lay the foundations through strategic and coordinated action.

Key stakeholders across organisations worldwide are investing more money and effort into leading reskilling efforts throughout their workforce with hopes of optimally aligning productivity and employee satisfaction. How can organisations prepare for a future that few of us can define? How will policy makers and business leaders alike, reinvent their strategies to address this transformation? What labour sector reforms are expected as the economy evolves?
