PODCAST: Upskilling and Reskilling – The Key to Surviving 2021 with Johnny Campbell, CEO and Co-Founder of SocialTalent

Join us on the third episode of our Transform Talent Podcast as we talk about the Skills Revolution with Johnny Campbell, CEO and Co-Founder of SocialTalent. In the last few months, we have witnessed the biggest reallocation of skills since World War II, with skills needs shifting from aviation and hospitality to driving, healthcare and IT at an unprecedented scale. Despite soaring levels of unemployment, acute skills shortages continue unabated, reinforcing the need to empower employees with the right tools and skills, now more than ever.

So how can organisations find the right employees to upskill and reskill? And to which skills? Why is it important to create a continuous learning environment? How can learning opportunities help retain talent and contribute to a better employee experience? As remote working is here to stay, how has it permanently changed our approach to learning and development? These, and many more questions (and answers), will be discussed in this episode.

Through engaging interviews with talent industry experts, our new podcast series discusses Covid-19’s global impact on the world of work, focusing on how this health crisis is impacting the return to the workplace, the great skills shift, employee physical and emotional well-being and the importance of building resilience in people and organisations. Our two hosts, Roberta Cucchiaro and Dominika Galusa also talk about the latest technologies and hear from our clients on how to make the Next Normal better for all.
