The World Economic Forum recently projected that by 2022 at least 54% of all employees will need reskilling and upskilling to respond to changing work requirements. Is your workplace ready? During this session, we’ll take a deep dive into the world of reskilling, upskilling and how thinking outside the box will result in creative talent solutions to move your business forward. This session is presented by LaunchCode, a nonprofit cultivating new tech talent pipelines and working with companies to identify, retrain and upskill existing employees into hard-to-fill tech roles. Talent is the heart of the innovation and entrepreneurial community. Cultivating talent pipelines that are homegrown, diverse and sustainable is essential to the growth of our current companies, as well as an important factor in attracting new companies to our region. Exploring new and innovative ways to attract new talent and/or skill up your existing employees is crucial to the success of all businesses – especially those engaged with Venture Café.
