Longer Life & Smarter Tech: Educating a Workforce for an Unknown Future

The power and pace of disruptive tech has turned many industries and organizations into unrecognizable versions of their past selves. In fact, many of the most sought-after jobs of today didn’t even exist 10 years ago. Because of this, many people have been left largely to their own devices to navigate this volatile world of work as job seekers. As the pace of change continues to quicken, companies need to develop ecosystems of learning and employment opportunities that make it easier on individuals to find their role and their place.

In this episode of L&D in Action, Michelle Weise describes how learning leaders will need to adapt their systems to equip workers for unpredictable technology and multifarious careers.

Join us as we discuss:

  • The characteristics of a learning ecosystem that supports people as holistic learners with a diverse education history.

  • How to teach employees to be “dangerous” enough to exploit new technology.

  • What developments to look for as traditional education begins to address professional competencies more.

  • The importance of understanding your employees’ skills at a granular level.

  • How “on- and off-ramps” between earning and learning may be a critical feature of future organizations.
