The Future of Work Part II: Uncovering New Talent & Re-skilling for a New World

Thursday, October 7, 2021

11:00 am – 12:00 pm EST


It’s clear that the pressures of the pandemic have only accelerated the arrival of the future of work. The accelerating pace of adopting new technologies will continue unabated, and has become a high priority for business leaders looking to stay ahead of the competition. Meanwhile many companies are undergoing pivotal transformations – making rapid changes to their locations, value propositions, and the shape and size of their workforce.

With the dual pressures of technology adoption and disruptions brought on by the pandemic, the core human capital skills needed to succeed in business will look drastically different in the next five years.

BAB brings together a panel of business leaders to explore the oncoming changes to the talent landscape, the evolving in-demand skills for your company to succeed in the future of work, and innovative approaches to stay ahead in the race for the best talent.

The discussion will cover:

  • The urgency to upskill your workforces for this new world, and uncovering emerging, untapped talent from underserved communities. Inequality will undoubtedly be compounded by the forces of the pandemic in tandem with the challenges of accelerated technology adoption.  How can recruitment and workforce development strategies help address this?
  • Related challenges in promoting employee well-being and productivity; how to create a sense of community, connection and belonging among your workforce through digital tools and despite a locationally distributed workforce.
