Upskilling, Reskilling, and the Future of Workplace Learning

Wednesday, May 2, 2018 1:00pm - 2:00pm EDT  
Host: Future Workplace Webinars
By: Becky Willis, VP of Enterprise Engagement, EdCast and Jeanne Meister, Executive Vice President, Executive Networks, and Founder, Future Workplace Academy

This interactive session will cover the key issues around upskilling and reskilling your employees, the value to your organization, and what upskilling means for the future of the workplace.

We will examine how the future workplace will be significantly different. The World Economic Forum predicts that over a third of skills considered important today will be obsolete in just five years. It is time to get serious about upskilling the workforce and to tackle the demands of the future to remain competitive. To be successful, we need a whole new perspective on learning and development in order to effectively prepare employees.

Key points that will be discussed:

  • Future-focused skill development
  • Upskilling and Reskilling techniques
  • Trends influencing the future workplace
  • Technology that is changing how learn and share knowledge
  • Global efforts to fill skill gaps
