The Fourth Industrial Revolution has begun and the stakes are high for businesses, workers, and society as a whole. The very concept of work is being redefined as different generations enter and exit the workforce. Digital technologies are demanding that employees acquire new skills to adapt to new ways of working. Otherwise, they’ll get left behind. L&D leaders now have a call to action: ensure employees are relevant and adaptable so they can rise to the challenge of this new revolution.
The task may seem daunting but here’s the good news: drawing on insights from the disruptive technology landscape over the past 20 years, we can proactively address the complex workforce challenges we face. There may never have been a better opportunity to get ahead of this issue. And never a greater risk of inaction. Our directive is clear – Prepare the future workforce. Now.

Keith will discuss the concept of building the connected learner, share actionable advice on ways you can identify the skills needed for the future in your organization, and how to foster a learning culture that will motivate employees to develop those skills.
