Host: Association for Talent Development
By: Janice Burns, Chief Career Experience Officer, Degreed and Ted Fleming, Head, Talent Development, CVS Health

Skills, not credentials, are quickly becoming the new currency of work. Why? With technology advancing and unprecedented economic, social, and environmental disruptions unfolding, a workforce with the skills to meet the moment can help create real value for your evolving business, which means people should be hired based on what they can do, not what their credentials say they know. It means developing people so they can perform and grow. 

You’ll learn how to:

  • Create a skill-building environment
  • Optimize the impact of your efforts
  • Analyze and shape your skill landscape using skill data
