Onboarding And Skill Building For The Future Of Work

Onboarding, upskilling, reskilling; all are essential strategies for developing internal talent for the future of work. And developing internal talent is imperative during times of rapid change. Chances are your employees’ responsibilities continue to change, and they’re expected to perform novel tasks in ever-changing working conditions. In this session, we’ll discuss the innovative methods and modalities to transform your current learning solutions to maximize employees’ capabilities.

  • Establish a connection
    • Incorporate messages of empathy as the new change management elixir
    • Boost morale in rapid and dynamic environments while creating meaningful connections to the new expectations
  • Build their confidence
    • Increase learner confidence to perform new skills whether they’ve been promoted, or their role has expanded to include more responsibilities
    • Create opportunities to build employees’ resilience to new, unfamiliar situations and tasks
  • Support their contributions
    • Incorporate autonomy by encouraging employees to own their development and skill-building by supplying them with the right tools
