The Future of Skills: How modern organisations are adopting an agile skills strategy
A look at how and why organisations are changing the way they identify, manage and build the existing and emerging skills in their workforce.
How do you identify and grow existing and emerging skills within your business? Are your learners able to highlight skills they have that you’re not aware of? Can you spot skill trends?
Take a look as THRIVE Co-Founder Mark Ward reveals why traditional skill approaches need to adapt, and explores the new way modern businesses are taking their skills strategy to the next level, harnessing the power of their learners in building a truly agile skills strategy.
