Work: In Progress – The Future of Work, Workforce and Workplace
Session 4: Future jobs, skills and talent planning
The world of work is changing. From the future of workspaces and ways of working, through to future jobs and talent planning; from commitments to diversity, inclusion and social purpose through to meeting the hiring demands of the growing tech sector.
Streamed live from Belfast, Work: In Progress is a Startacus event with a NI heart and soul, but with a focus on themes of global relevance and significance.
Each themed session is accessible as a standalone 1 hr 20 min streamed event (with a small in-person audience) and will encompass a keynote speaker, a panel discussion, as well as an opportunity to hear from 2 Irish tech startups with relevance to the event’s core themes.
In partnership with Matrix NI, in this 4th session focused on future jobs, skills and talent planning, we explore:
– Tackling talent shortages
– Alternatives to university and emerging talent strategies incl. training & grad schemes, apprenticeships and skills academies
– Newer ways of working – from role sharing to remote and flexible work opps.
– Up-skilling and re-skilling strategies
– The current relationship between education, careers and employers
– Future jobs and future skills – how can we predict the roles of the future?
– What a good skills academy should look like
– Can unlocking talent and skills really impact social inequality and economic prosperity?
