Virtual Think Tank Series
Everything Has Changed – But These Five Things Remain Important For Talent Development
Tuesday, June 2, 2020 • 2:00 PM – 3:00 PM (EST)
At the start of 2020, it would have been impossible to imagine the world as it is today. In a matter of weeks, our work and lifestyles have been disrupted beyond recognition: flights grounded, people housebound, rationing of food and supplies, and rocketing unemployment. It’s no surprise that this time has been described as “a human crisis unlike any we have experienced.”
While we take a moment to recognize the devastating impact of COVID-19 on human lives, we need to think about what it means for the future of talent management.
This Virtual Think Tank will be restricted to an intimate group of Learning & Development Leaders, and VPs of HR and Talent Management, who will gather to share insights, experiences and thoughts about what the future holds for talent development. In this interactive session, you will:
- Learn the five things that remain important, even at this time of crisis
- Discuss the skills gaps this crisis has exposed
- Explore the impact soaring unemployment will have on how we recruit
- Discover how the employee experience during this critical time will influence our retention and employer brands
- Take away practical tips you can implement immediately
