To build internal career mobility, isn’t just a nice thing to do, it’s really an imperative for companies to develop the kind of skills they need as the jobs around us keep changing.”
How things have changed is a big subject: learning, our traditional life model, expectations of the workforce (millennials especially)… Other talking points include why our productivity has declined and how we should be creating jobs now.
In an age where skill sets can become obsolete in just a few years, many workers are scrambling just to stay current. The days of a steady, stable career are over. Organizations have become flatter and less ladder-like, making upward progression less common and the rapid pace of technology makes many jobs outdated in only a few years. Josh discusses how organizations can encourage continuous learning, improve individual mobility, and foster a growth mind-set in every employee and why it’s so important to do so. Companies that figure this out can outperform, out-innovate, and out-execute their peers.

Josh Bersin is truly an expert in the industry making this one video not to be missed.
