A Pragmatic Approach to Building a Skills Strategy

August 11, 2020 • 11:00 AM - 12:00 PM

Recent ATD data states nearly 52 percent of workers’ skill sets don’t match their companies’ markets, strategies, goals, or business models. That’s why two out of every three talent development leaders are looking for new solutions to transform their people’s skills and organizations.

But more than shorter courses and new technology should be considered. The first place to start is a new strategy that puts your workforce and continuous reskilling at the forefront.

During this webcast, you will learn:

  • How to align leaders across the organization around re-skilling
  • The importance of marketing in your launch strategy
  • Some practical insights on how to create a skills-based strategy
