Changes in markets, business environments, organizational objectives, and other events make upskilling or reskilling employees critical talent strategies for many companies. Workforce capabilities directly impact competitive ability, strategic execution, critical role and leadership pipelines, organizational agility, and more. This webcast explores highlights from the latest research on upskilling and reskilling from ATD and the Institute for Corporate Productivity (i4cp). Carol Morrison, Senior Research Analyst, i4cp, and special guest Rob Lauber, Senior Vice President and Chief Learning Officer, McDonald's Corporation, will discuss study findings and McDonald's Archways to OpportunityTM program.

More than half (56 percent) of surveyed learning leaders say their companies are providing upskilling, reskilling, or both—and doing so is strongly tied to better market performance and learning outcomes. However, 33 percent acknowledged that they have identified the need to upskill or reskill employees, yet have taken no action, effectively gambling with potential talent and business risks. Join this webcast to dive deeper into this new research and learn how it can impact your organization.
