HRO Hotspot: How to tackle the greatest talent challenge of our time - upskilling

In this video interview, we hear from Degreed's Sarah Danzl on how you as an employer or L&D head can support your employees as they upskill to stay relevant for the future.

Seven in 10 managers and workers recently surveyed in APAC feel that the pandemic has accelerated the need to learn new skills

Yet, even at a time when upskilling - what many believe is the greatest talent challenge of our time - is perhaps needed more than ever, 72% of workers say their employer has cut learning opportunities.

How then, are employers continuing to upskill their workforce for the future, and what can you as an L&D head do to make the most of every dollar spent?

Joining us to explore this topic, in this edition of HRO Hotspot, is our interviewee Sarah Danzl.

Sarah is the Head of Global Communications at Degreed, an enterprise learning specialist, where she leads the PR, communications, and client advocacy teams.

Having spent over 12 years in L&D content, she has seen the space evolve – with skills that were once in-demand, now losing steam and giving way to more urgent skills. 

Against this backdrop, she shares with us some ideas on how you can support your employees on this journey.   

Here’s what you can look forward to in this video interview:

  • How employers are continuing to upskilling their workforce even on a leaner L&D budget.   
  • The most in-demand skills that businesses are going to need (and have to develop rather quickly) over the next few years.
  • Tips for L&D leaders on creating upskilling opportunities that a) deliver greater returns and b) make the most of every dollar.
