Skill Up Your Employees for the Future

Today’s organizations face a critical challenge to reskill and upskill their workforce in the face of AI and robots replacing traditional jobs. 65% of the jobs our next gen workers will perform do not even exist yet! 

Training program adoption increases when employees know their career path and see how training impacts their own development—but how do you plan for jobs that don’t exist yet? 

In this webinar, Jon Tota, Rockstar Learning Evangelist at eLearning Brothers, showed webinar attendees how to design a digital learning program to future proof your workforce. In addition to dropping some facts and figures, Jon showed how to use the Rockstar Learning Platform to put his advice into action.

The pandemic caused an acceleration of automation and economic uncertainty that is shifting the division of labor between humans and machines. 

According to the Linkedin Learning 2021 Workplace Learning Report and World Economic Forum Report, 85 million jobs were displaced and 95 million new jobs were created. 

There are new skills required for the new world we find ourselves in:

  1. Resilience and Adaptability
  2. Digital Fluency/Technology Skills
  3. Remote Communication
  4. Emotional Intelligence
  5. Cross-Functional Collaboration

A year ago, this list looked different. But in the wake of a global pandemic, these are where learning priorities have shifted.

“We are seeing the emergence of a Skills Revolution—where helping people upskill and adapt to a fast-changing world of work will be the defining challenge of our time.” 

-Jonas Prising, CEO

Manpower Group

Jon shared a handful of steps you can take to shift your focus to skills-based learning using a learning platform.

5 Steps to Skills-based Learning

  1. Identify skills gaps and organization needs
  2. Inventory current and future position goals
  3. Build career paths from here to there
  4. Involve the learner in the process—let them self-assess and enroll
  5. Monitor progress, adapt learning, quantify impact

Then Jon showed how you can use the Rockstar Learning Platform to personalize learning paths for your learners and get the learner involved in the process. (Jump to 33:35 in the recording below to get straight to the LMS demo.)
