Overview of presentation

Now, more than ever, we look to future proof our organisation and boost employees’ skills in the face of expected large-scale displacement. Being able to fill skills gaps internally and connect your people’s success to your organisation’s top priorities can result in increased engagement and tenure, and position you as an employer of choice for future employees.

In this session we will discuss the current and upcoming challenges being seen in the market, and demonstrate how to:

  • Create a skills ontology that connects your employees to learning 
  • Leverage technology do the “heavy lifting” by creating skills profiles
  • Connect your people’s success to your organisation’s success through data driven development conversations
