Steve Boese, HR Technology Conference program chair and HR Happy Hour podcast co-host

According to the World Economic Forum, 54% of employees expect to need upskilling or reskilling by 2022. One of the primary challenges facing organizations as they embrace the digital transformation is the gap between the limited supply of people with the right technology skills and the growing demand for talent to fill new and changing roles. To find a solution, organizations have to think differently about talent and reskilling their workforces – and embrace more flexible approaches to finding and developing the talent they need in 2020 and beyond.

With the McKinsey Global Institute predicting about 14% of the workforce will have to change careers by 2030, are your organization’s learning, development and upskilling initiatives ready for the growing demand?

In this episode of HR Break Room®, Boese rejoins host Caleb Masters to discuss:

  • how today’s incredibly tight labor market drives employers to provide employees with the tools, knowledge and capabilities they need to succeed
  • how reskilling is used to anticipate organizational changes and equip employees with the skills they need to match those changes over time
  • why a major draw for potential employees is understanding how their personal values align with those of an organization
  • the importance of giving employees learning technology that is easily accessible and familiar
