Everywhere we look, people are talking about skills. Upskilling, skills tech, skills data. The list goes on and on. But what do we really mean when we talk about skills? And how can we take advantage of their potential to transform our workforces, while avoiding the downsides of complexity, inaccuracy, and confusion. 

Tune into this lively discussion where our expert panelists discuss how leaders can use skills to better understand their workforces and to enable them to meet the needs of the future. We share insights into how leaders are thinking about and using skills in organizations such as Guild Education, Syngenta, Mars, the British Red Cross, and more.

Topics of discussion will include:

  • Organizations’ overall purpose in focusing on skills, both now and in the future
  • The potential benefits of focusing on skills
  • The role of technology in making skills more useful to the organization
  • How the concept and potential of skills will change in the future
