- June 25, 2020 – Part II: The Failure of Current Talent Strategies — 2PM EDT
Why are past “solutions” for talent shortages no longer producing the skills needed in 21st-century workplaces? How are the Fourth Industrial Revolution and imploding global demographics combining to significantly escalate skill demands for incoming workers? This is a global talent meltdown that will extend beyond 2030.
- July 23, 2020 – Part III: The Talent Desert — 2PM EDT
How has the U.S. workforce gone from being the world’s best educated in 1970 to one in which survey after survey of business leaders report finding qualified workers as one of their top problems? What can we expect if we do not alter the significant deficits in employee skills over the next decade?
- August 20, 2020 – Part IV: Rebuilding Workforce Knowledge — 2 PM EDT
The supply of workers and demand for more talent have drastically changed. This means that regional education-to-employment delivery systems need to be fundamentally restructured. No one business can do this alone. We will discuss how successful regional public-private partnership hubs can be developed to meet business and community labor-force needs.
