Reskilling for

Sustainable Growth

Online | Friday 22 March 2024
12.00 – 13.00 GMT


The shrinking workforce, AI-driven disruption and the need to apply a sustainability lens to every area of the organisation mean that the future workforce will look very different. Organisations need to develop reskilling strategies to identify and build future capabilities and ensure a sustainable workforce. Workforce planning, skill pathways and increasing the flow of talent around the organisation are all potential solutions to this challenge. This event will explore how HR can help organisations build future skills and harness technology to achieve this goal.

Learning Objectives

  • Consider how the shape of the workforce is likely to evolve, and the implications for your organisation.
  • Explore strategies, frameworks and tools which can support you in designing your organisation’s plans for reskilling.
  • Through case studies, learn about the reskilling strategies other organisations have adopted and what they have learned from their experiences that can be applied in your organisation.
  • Explore the latest technology and tools to support workforce planning and reskilling, and how they might be applied effectively.
  • Uncover the implications of reskilling for learning and development, workforce planning and job design.

Who is this event for?

  • HRDs
  • Learning & Development and Talent professionals with responsibility for workforce planning and talent management and those considering reskilling as an element of their people agenda.
