Roundtable Discussion: Driving business outcomes through skills-first learning

Key Discussion Points
  • Skilling: A key imperative to drive business innovations
  • Identifying the existing skill gap in the workforce
  • Key expectations from learning programs 
  • Creating a holistic plan to re-skill all employees 

We are no strangers to the shifts in business and the corresponding talent requirements. Changing work patterns, business models and reliance on digital technologies require organisations to upskill their employees with future-age competencies swiftly. It's the only way to maintain business relevance, growth and resilience to future disruptions. Of course, the process of reskilling is not a simple one-day affair considering the complexities involved in designing a comprehensive skill-first strategy. 'Skills-first' indicates reskilling the workforce with essential skills of the industry and the business on priority.

A skills-first approach to learning and development seeks the attention of CXO's boardroom to craft a reskilling road map for the entire workplace.
