FROM SKILLS GAP TO SKILLS REVOLUTION: TRANSFORMING TODAY’S WORKFORCE FOR TOMORROW’S ECONOMY The nature of work — and consequently, the nature of the workforce — has evolved at a rapid pace in recent years. The next normal will arrive fast on the heels of the new normal, meaning today’s skills gap will soon be a skills crisis. The reality is: intervention is not enough. What’s called for is a skills transformation. Join Jeff Tarr, CEO of Skillsoft, as he speaks with three customers to learn how they’re creating their future-fit workforce.
WHAT CAN YOU DO IN A “TAKE THIS JOB AND SHOVE IT” JOB MARKET? In light of “The Great Resignation,” where millions of employees are considering quitting their jobs, it’s getting harder and harder to hire and retain people. Some are looking for career changes; others are interested in just “taking a break” from current jobs. What’s going on? Skillsoft has invited Josh Bersin, global research analyst and CEO of The Josh Bersin Company, to give us some answers and explain why reinventing the employee experience is so important. He’ll bring to the discussion recent research on post-pandemic talent practices, the six principles that should guide decisions related to improving employee experiences, and some of the innovative approaches companies are taking to attract new talent and navigate the complexities of hybrid work. - Josh Bersin

In new remote and hybrid-model workplaces, each contributor must have the ability and willingness to manage his or her own time — and his or her own learning. Find out why learning will be pivotal to success, and how to leverage learning for your own organization.
