AGILE Global Innovation Series: Shifting to a Skills-Based Workforce

February 22, 2023

Job titles and college degrees are out. Skills are in. That is the takeaway from new research about hiring and retaining workers so businesses can succeed. Emphasizing skills in job descriptions has boosted the quality and quantity of people applying for jobs. And investing in staff training related to specific skills has increased the number of people who stay with their current employer instead of searching for a greener pasture. During this session, participants will learn what academic institutions are doing to ensure their students have the right skills needed to enter and advance in careers related to global business, as well as how artificial intelligence (such as ChatGPT) is influencing the institutions’ decisions about what and how to teach.
