As businesses grapple with the impact of Industry 4.0, HR departments need to quickly turn their attention to how the digitised future of work will change the skills and capabilities required by their employees.
Do we know what skills and capabilities will be required and whether our workforce is ready for the future?
In this networking session, General Manager of OPRA Psychology Group, Ben Hainsworth, will cover these workforce trends and frameworks for future skills and capabilities, together with a case study of how OPRA have used innovative and award winning technology to measure skills and support career management as part of a workforce revolution.

 - The role of technology to enable skills development to move from transactional to transformative

This forum is suitable for:
