Host: Burt Rea, managing director, Deloitte Consulting LLP
For decades talent strategies and processes were built around specific jobs. In a world that now values innovation and speed over efficiency, how can a skills-based organization (SBO) facilitate rapid talent sourcing and support strategic objectives? We’ll discuss:
- Key differences between job-based and skills-based talent management.
- Specific ways that an SBO can unleash value at all levels, from CXOs and managers to frontline employees.
- Practical considerations for building an SBO, including talent strategies, learning and training, and tools and technologies.
