As the pace of change continues to accelerate, organizations are seeking new skills and knowledge to remain sustainable and competitive. Faced with one of the tightest markets for talent in decades however, they can no longer rely on external recruitment efforts to bring new skills into their organizations. With rates of U.S. unemployment remaining steady at 3.7%, what are the best ways to address this skills gap? And, how can organizations see skills gaps as opportunities to reskill current employees, improve retention, and develop a future-ready workforce?
In this webcast, presented by the Human Capital Institute and RiseSmart, we’ll reveal research describing the skills most desired by organizations and the widest gaps employers identify in their workforce. We’ll share how training and development approaches are being leveraged to close skills gaps, as well as improve the value proposition for candidates and current employees.
You will learn:
The most sought-after skills are not trade or job-specific, but more generalizable social, cognitive, or emotional skills
How training and development programs are growing in their importance for meeting the needs for these skills
Best practices for different learning modalities to close gaps and adjust to time limitations for dedicated learning
