The way we work is transforming as the pace of change evolves, giving rise to the digital enterprise and operations as AI and automation become mainstream. The Fourth Industrial Revolution has begun, and the stakes are high for businesses, workers, and society as a whole. Digital technologies are demanding that employees acquire new skills to adapt to new ways of working. Otherwise, they’ll be left behind. L&D leaders now have a call to action: ensure employees are relevant and adaptable so they can rise to the challenge of this new revolution.
The task may seem daunting, but here’s the good news: drawing on insights from the disruptive technology landscape over the past 20 years, we can proactively address the complex workforce challenges we face. There may never have been a better opportunity to get ahead of this issue. And never a greater risk of inaction. Our directive is clear—create the future workforce. Today. The future has not yet been written, but with proper vision, strategy, and execution, we can help shape the direction it takes.
In this session, Keith Keating, Senior Director of Global Learning Strategies, draws from theory and research, focusing on helping you prepare and take action for future workforce development. Keith will discuss the concept of building the connected learner, share actionable advice on ways you can identify the skills needed for the future in your organization, and learn how to foster a learning culture that will motivate employees to develop those skills.
