Show Notes

This episode is part of the Learning Uncut Emergent series where we talk about rapidly changing business models, and how Learning and Development can support organizations to adapt.  Exploring how learning professionals can emerge from disruption as relevant and effective.

The World Economic Forum states that by 2022 no less than 54% of all employees will require significant reskilling and upskilling. Will the workplace be prepared?  Simon Tindall and Simon Gibson discuss the importance of adapting employees’ skills and roles to a post-COVID future and the ways of working that will be crucial to building a strength-based organization. They address how organizations are preparing to adapt and how L&D can review how they gather information about job skills and capabilities.
