12:35pm-1:10pm EDT How to Overcome Legacy Bias and Barriers to Accelerating Talent Development

General Session

Every day it seems we get new data highlighting the challenges facing HR and L&D leaders. Alarming stats about the great resignation, talent wars, skills half-life, hybrid working, equity needs, and rapid digitization can make it hard to know what to do and where to start — even though most leaders recognize that developing skilled talent is an essential part of the solution.

Join us for a thought-provoking discussion with David Blake who will share his perspective on pre-pandemic approaches to employee development, and why we need fresh thinking and focused actions to overcome biased and underwhelming approaches. David will also discuss actionable skill and talent development strategies you can put in place today and talk about how to leverage all your resources and sunk investments in the most efficient way, so every employee builds the right skills for today and tomorrow.

In this session, you will:

  • Explore fresh thinking and practical strategies to accelerate talent development
  • Learn how to align employee development demands with company strategic needs
  • Discover how more of your employees can gain access to deep, intensive programs
  • Learn how to meet shifting skill demands quicker, and more effectively
