Virtual Think Tank Series

The New Future of Work

Thursday, October 22 2020 • 2:00 PM – 3:00 PM (EDT)

The future of the workplace is changing. How you and your organization adapt is vital.

Wiley’s own adaptability has been proven over our 213-year-old history. As we navigate the new challenges brought to us this year, we are beginning to gain a better understanding of the challenges for talent management in a remote and socially distanced world.

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:

  • Explore the recent changes for business owners, our employees, and the unemployed
  • Discover the newly exposed skills gap
  • Discuss responsive planning with a strategic focus
  • Investigate what a “new normal” marketplace will look like
  • Talk through the long-term impacts that businesses need to be prepared for
  • Take away practical tips you can implement immediately ly
