Emerging critical labour market and skills issues: embedding learning and development at the heart of your organisation

Emerging critical labour market and skills issues: embedding learning and development at the heart of your organisation.

It’s becoming increasingly difficult to predict the skills which organisations will need in the future, so reskilling and upskilling has become more important than ever, particularly in the light of reduced access to talent following Brexit, alongside an aging workforce and continued technological disruption. To prepare employers must shift from a buy to a build strategy, embedding learning and development opportunities at the heart of their organisations.

While changes in technology will undoubtedly increase the importance of digital capabilities across the workforce, there’s a growing recognition that core ‘human’ skills will become more valued.

Drawing on CIPD’s research and analysis of the changing world of work, skills and the impact of Brexit, this session will explore:

  • Key skills and labour market challenges facing the UK
  • The changing world of work and implications for HR
  • Key challenges facing business post Brexit and how to prepare
