Super Session - Upskilling, Reskilling, Downskilling: Hidden Talent, Open Jobs - Panel

Back Bay A & B, 2nd Floor

In an unprecedented talent shortage, with historically low unemployment, the need for creative generation of new labor pools has never been higher. The answer is reskilling - but how can agencies get started with these initiatives, should they be internal or external, and what constitutes success from a metrics perspective? This panel will focus on a frank and open discussion of the challenges and opportunities inherent in creating reskilling programs and techniques that staffing companies are leveraging to make reskilling work for them and their talent pools, including but not limited to: investing in their own training academies and in-house universities; catering to specific demographics of traditionally marginalized talent pools for reskilling such as neurodiverse candidates and veterans; and acquiring or partnering with learning institutions. This is a cannot-miss panel of visionary industry leaders.
