Prioritise skills development to meet the future of work
The business landscape has grown even more competitive over the past two years.
Work has become more complex, agile and fluid.
The shelf life of work skills is getting shorter, placing a premium on up-to-the-minute knowledge.
Investing in continuous learning to upskill/reskill your people for future roles has never been more critical.
The learning and development (L&D) function is vital to achieving organisation goals. Help your employees grow in ways that bring meaning and value to both the business and the individual.
Top talent is hard to find — and keep
A challenging talent market has sharpened the focus on attraction and retention — CEOs’ top asks of their HR leaders, according to Mercer’s 2022-2023 Global Talent Trends report.
Employers must play a lead role in keeping people employable, and employees are clear: Building skills increases their marketability, but investing in staff development makes them stay.
Employees who plan to leave their jobs this year are less likely to say their employers provide opportunities for horizontal moves, access to a career portal or a clear career journey.
By embracing a circular talent economy, your organisation can continuously reap the benefits of investing in learning and development. This means skills development is constant, and talent is perpetually redeployed in step with new opportunities and an evolving tech/human workplace. To deliver on this vision, companies must think beyond L&D and appreciate that skills — bought, borrowed or built from within — are the bedrock of robust future-of-work plans.
