Many factors will affect our ability to attract, develop, and retain talent in the future, including rapidly changing technology, demographic changes, generational differences, culture, and others.
Think about these facts from the World Economic Forum:
35% of the core skills of today could change by 2020
65% of the jobs our own children in elementary school will be doing in the future do not yet exist
These are just a couple of data points that capture the significant change ahead. Is your company’s leadership team and workforce ready for the speed of change required to win? Only 18% of C-suite leaders describe their organization as agile enough today to succeed through change. One of the single biggest questions the board needs to be asking of their CEOs is, “Is our workforce strategy built for the future of work?”
The good news: Leaders can proactively prepare talent strategies. Come hear a dynamic panel of thought leaders from both the academic and corporate world discuss ways companies in a variety of industries can take steps to develop and retain a future-ready workforce and collaborate with educational institutions as lifelong learning becomes the norm for workers of all ages. The panel’s experience in talent acquisition, retention and training spans entities as diverse as Cerner, J E Dunn, Walmart, the Department of Health and Human Services, and Kansas University.
Big change in the way we work and acquire and update our skills is coming fast–no industry is immune. This session will help you get ready.
