There was a time, not too long ago, when graduating from a college was all that you needed to enter the workforce. And the skills you acquired there combined with your experience was enough to sail you till your retirement. But in today’s fast-changing world, with many jobs becoming obsolete and new roles cropping up, there is a need to upskill and reskill employees to approach their roles differently using emerging technologies.
According to a recent report by Harvard Business Publishing, it was found that 54% of the workforce will need upskilling or reskilling by 2025. And the biggest concern for organisations isn’t that there aren’t enough workers, it is that they don’t have the workers with the right skills. In these challenging times, developing a culture of learning in organisations becomes essential.
With access to information, everyone is constantly learning on versatile mediums. But organisations and leaders need to guide their employees so as to align their needs and preferences with organisational needs and resources. Personalising learning has become key to transforming organisations. And with the recent research and reports in learning, we can conclude that employees are eager to learn, all they need is someone to show them the way forward.
At People Matters L&D India Conference 2022, over 40 global L&D speakers will guide you to achieve this goal. The sessions will not just revolve around how to personalise learning for employees but will also highlight the ways in which learning can be inculcated as a life-long habit, how to build an atmosphere for social learning, creating learner-driven experiences and measuring the progress of it all. So, join us on October 12 at Grand Hyatt, Mumbai where you can discover solutions to bridging the skills gap through learning.
This year, we have an interesting line-up of speakers from diverse backgrounds, who will empower you and your organisations to lead the way amid the disruptions. Here are some of our star speakers:
