The world of work as we know it is changing. As artificial intelligence and automation enter the workplace, the role of the human workforce must evolve. The “technology takeover” we’ve been talking about for years is not right around the corner, it’s here. Intelligent machines are beginning to take on the more physical and repetitive tasks, so where does that leave the human workforce? For the humans to thrive, we must focus on our biggest strength — being human.Skills like creativity, judgement, and interpersonal communication are valued more than ever, but research has found that most companies have large gaps in those critical areas of “soft skills.” These gaps are creating an even bigger need for companies to build a strong learning program — quickly. So, where do we start?

Learn from CEO and Founder of BizLibrary, Dean Pichee, as he explains why the focus should be on reskilling current employees, and how other companies are using this pivotal time to establish a strong learning and development program and achieve future success within their industry.

During this session, you’ll learn:

  • How jobs are evolving and what this means for learning and development in the workforce
  • Why reskilling your employees is not only beneficial, but mission critical to your organization
  • Four attributes of a modern learning experience that will aid in the reskilling efforts and increase employee engagement

This webinar was originally presented at HR Virtual Summit 2019.
