Upskilling for a changing world - How to operationalise the translation of your business strategy into a sustainable people strategy

"Upskilling has become, more than ever, the indispensable response to the ongoing technological and economic transformation. It is an essential element of a new ‘social contract’ which the new technological changes require if we want them to represent an opportunity for all." Nicolas Schmit, European commissioner jobs and social rights.

Digital transformation, climate change, demography are all transformation drivers and game changers in how companies, society and individuals need to look at the evolution of jobs, skills needed and career paths.
Upskilling is a tangible and concrete response to the challenges of workplace transformation while supporting competitiveness and employability – in one word, growth for all.
