What will tomorrow’s workforce look like? Thanks to the pandemic, innovation is happening so fast – evolution in the space of months instead of years – hiring alone won’t meet your changing talent needs. What you need are people who can upskill, adapt, and deploy – and fast.

In this program, learn how to set the stage for those workforces. Josh Bersin and a panel of senior HR and learning executives will discuss:

  • The impact workforce education can have on talent management 
  • Practical approaches that help employees gain the skills needed to adapt in a world of uncertainty
  • How to build resiliency–for your employees and your organization
