WEBINAR: Accelerate Company Success with Soft Skills Acquisition - with Jan Rijken

How can you accelerate your company success with soft skills acquisition?

Following the popularity of our recent Survive & Thrive global roadshow, we are pleased to announce that we will now be running an online version of the event in an exclusive 1hr webinar.


55% of the workforce needs reskilling with soft skills as the number 1 priority! Technology is impacting business models, the workforce roles and their skills. Reskilling is the only answer to stay competitive – Is your skills gap hindering your organization’s potential for success? Although companies are investing substantially in skills development, Gartner research has indicated that 80% of employees are still missing skills for current and future jobs. What’s missing in the equation? Whether due to a lack of understanding of what essential skills are required, or a lack of focus on key L&D enablers, it is now critical for CLO’s and their L&D departments to adapt and drive the up-skilling of the workforce.

Join Talent & Learning Thought Leader Jan Rijken, in this interactive webinar, as he discusses:

  • The dynamics with the L&D environment that impact employability
  • 2019 L&D trends that will impact skills development
  • Key challenges that CLOs specifically face
  • The 3 entities responsible for developing employees’ skills: Learner; Line-manager; L&D
