Robots have risen, and they’ve come for our jobs. Millions of jobs. The World Economic Forum forecasts that by 2025, machines will perform more current work tasks than humans. Even before then – by 2023 – 75 million jobs stand to be replaced by automation, while 58 million net new jobs will be created. At least 14% of the global workforce may need to switch occupational categories to keep pace with demand. Quite simply, this is a change unrivaled at any point in human history.
It’s not just new technical skills that are needed. It’s also the uniquely human professional skills that artificial intelligence can’t supply (and which are persistently difficult to scale): adaptability, creativity, empathy, critical thinking. Is your organization able to identify the specific skills you will need? Can you keep prepared, or is it a struggle just to keep current?
In this research partnership between HCI and the Cornerstone People Research Lab, we investigate new-skilling efforts and how HR professionals collaborate to identify changing needs, accelerate the development of existing talent, and enhance the agility of the organization.
Join us as we reveal insights from our latest study. We will:
Share how organizations are anticipating the skills that they need
Discuss some of the approaches used to better understand workforce competencies and skills
Learn more about identifying skill adjacencies and leveraging bridging skills to meet your organization's emerging needs
Explore how high-performing organizations – those ranked with the best talent and business outcomes – measure, monitor, and deliver learning programs for the future of work
All registrants will receive a copy of the research report.
