The ROI and Reality of Reskilling

Rapid technological change has created unprecedented training and hiring challenges for organizations. Critical skill sets are in short supply, making it difficult and costly to solve simply by hiring outside talent. New research suggests the best solution to this dilemma may be more of a hybrid approach. What is the right strategy for your organization? Where does it make sense to invest in reskilling? What is the best way to implement a reskilling strategy?

Our all-star panel, consisting of General Assembly Co-Founder & CEO Jake Schwartz, McKinsey OrgSolutions Group Partner Carla Arellano and Mastercard Chief Talent Officer Kelly Joscelyne will share insights on these questions and much more.
