Faster, Better, Smarter: Creating a Future Ready Workforce

Making predictions is always a gamble. But there’s no risk in forecasting the need for a faster, better, smarter workforce. The sheer pace of technology and competitive innovation alone assures an unrelenting need to up-skill.

But employees aren’t the only ones facing a future where what drives performance today is likely to become irrelevant or obsolete tomorrow. Learning executives also feel intense pressure to constantly improve, reinvent and retool their enterprise education initiatives to be faster, better, smarter, too.

Join us at the CLO Breakfast Club where we’ll be discussing the trends, technologies and practices transforming employee development into an even more powerful force for sustained success.
