How does creating a skills-focused organisation drive an inclusive agenda?

Our host Chris and in-house skills expert David Pacifico speak to two expert guests, Annee Bayeux, Chief Learning Strategist at education technology company Degreed and Dr. Tiffany Tesfamichael Head of Learning Strategy, at drone experience business Lens.Vegas about what benefits a skills-focused organisation can bring, including creating more opportunities for mobility and inclusivity.

A skills-based talent strategy focuses on an employee’s skillset rather than their role or position at a company. As such, it creates room for sideways and diagonal moves within an organisation regardless of any preconception of what competencies are associated with an existing role. 

Can AI be used to keep track of individuals skills?

In this podcast we discuss how AI will help individuals to remain relevant in the workforce. Emphasising the importance of keeping pace with changing skills requirements, they cover how the skills-based approach will allow employees to fill gaps where AI cannot inhabit. They also talk about the evolving landscape of learning, the use of technology, and the need for a shift in mindset when it comes to learning and development.  

How many businesses are truly embracing Learning Experience Platforms (LXPs)?

Dr. Tesfamichael believes that many Fortune 100 companies have embraced LXPs, but there may be more opportunities for smaller businesses and startups to prioritise learning and upskilling. 

Overall, the podcast gives examples of how you can build skills-focused learning into your strategy and use it to drive greater inclusivity. Listen now to learn how your organisation can adapt and invest and in upskilling initiatives to stay ahead while also gaining insights into the evolving nature of learning
