Retraining and retraining of existing talent

A McKinsey & Company report showed that organizations that had launched reskilling programs before COVID-19 were better able to fill skills gaps and implement new business models or strategies. It’s not too late to future-proof your organization now.

Watch the webinar recording below to learn how you can improve and reskill existing talent to meet the needs of your organization.

Our guest speaker in this webinar is Shweta Mogha, co-founder of eWOW, ICF certified coach, diversity champion and HR leader. He brings over 20 years of experience leading people organizations for companies such as Meta, Amazon and Airtel.

Interviewing Shweta, and also sharing his insights, is Rich Vass, VP, of Learning Solutions, ELB Learning. He has over 25 years of experience in the learning and development industry and has helped numerous organizations design the best learning experiences for their needs.

Shweta is a consultant to many organizations and startups. He helps these organizations evolve their business strategy to be able to handle upcoming changes, which include upgrading and retraining.

  • Retraining it is when an employee learns new skills to be better at their current job and current career path.
  • Retraining it is when an employee learns new skills for a different job or function.

After events like layoffs or major economic changes, HR teams and business leaders drive the decision of what skills their organization needs. Employees must be mentally prepared and ready to learn and unlearn different skills.

Example of skills improvement

The transition from traditional marketing to digital marketing is one example where a worker might need to upskill to master new online tools and strategies.

Example of redevelopment

In a manufacturing environment, suppose new equipment is coming to speed up what was previously manual labor, workers may need to retrain in the use of the new machinery.

The good news is that organizations today understand that skills are more important than degrees.

In the webinar, Rich and Shweta focus on four key categories organizations need to navigate in order to adapt to today’s workplace challenges:

  1. Attraction
  2. Development
  3. Performance
  4. Culture and leadership
