The challenges of workforce innovation

Our world is changing rapidly. Almost every day, we introduce novel technologies with the power to disrupt entire industries. To keep up with this change, businesses must attract fresh talent, matching technological acceleration with their own.

Doing so presents us with significant challenges. We must constantly develop new skills and cultivate new talent at an ever-accelerating pace. As our traditional workforce models become obsolete, we must look to innovation for fresh perspectives.

An innovative approach to talent

As technological development continues to accelerate, businesses are discovering that technology is a double-edged sword. On the one hand, it creates exciting new opportunities to add genuine value. On the other, it creates a need for an increasingly diverse talent profile. In the old paradigm of talent ownership, this is a tough nut to crack. Traditional recruitment processes simply can’t keep up.

Instead, we must take a different approach to talent, one that favors innovation over the ways of the past. Organizations must make the switch to a talent attraction mindset, building and maintaining a robust talent community from which to draw the skills they need to succeed. A dynamic environment demands a dynamic workforce, and innovation is the way to get there.

Building on innovations in e-learning

Of course, attracting new talent is only part of the solution. Businesses must also focus on developing the talent they already have. And if advances in digital technology are driving all these rapid changes, where better to look for new tools than the digital world?

Innovations in e-learning are making it easier than ever to learn and develop new skills. The internet has become a classroom, and it’s always open. At the same time, disruptive technologies such as robotics and artificial intelligence offer unique opportunities to augment the workforce, increasing productivity and turning employees into force multipliers. Organizations have always fought a battle for talent. With the right partnerships, they can now turn the tide in their favor.
