1 Overview CPE credit | Specialized Knowledge

While a focus on workforce skills is a tactical necessity, it alone is not sufficient to address transformations taking place today. How are leading organizations moving beyond skilling to take a more dynamic approach that empowers people and organizations to thrive? We'll discuss:

  • Current workforce drivers, including a fast-changing skills landscape and organizational challenges to meet talent needs.
  • How organizations are beginning to focus more on innovation and value creation in their approaches to skilling.
  • Key characteristics essential for organizations to move from short-term skilling to ongoing resilience building.

Participants will discover new organizational skilling strategies and consider ways to prepare the workforce to drive more value and meaning.

RESKILLING alone may be a strategic dead end. Renewing workers’ skills is a tactical necessity, but reskilling is not a sufficient path forward by itself. The skill shortage is too great. The investments are too small. The pace of change is too rapid, quickly rendering even “successful” reskilling efforts obsolete. What is needed is a worker development approach that considers both the dynamic nature of jobs and the equally dynamic potential of people to reinvent themselves. To do this effectively, organizations should focus on building workers’ resilience for both the short and the long term—a focus that can allow organizations to increase their own resilience in the face of constant change.
