Embracing AI and Skills: Unlocking Your Organization’s Potential
Breakout Session
Join Mercer experts, Global Solutions Lead - Skills, Jobs, Careers, Brian Fisher, and Partner, John More details Land, for a thought-provoking session on the dynamic intersection of AI, skills, and the future of work. They will explore how AI and skills are reshaping the very fabric of our professional landscape and explain HR's mindset shift from jobs to skills, and why hiring, developing, rewarding, and planning for skills are improving workforce productivity.

In doing so, they will also expose the two largest upskilling challenges that today's HR professionals are facing: a lack of understanding of what skills are now needed, and more importantly, a lack of understanding of the skillset that currently exists in their own organizations. Thankfully, these are easy fixes according to Brian and John who will share key tips, tools and solutions that will help close these gaps.

As an attendee you will walk away with an understanding of:
  • How AI is changing the future of work
  • Why putting skills at the center of your HR programs and services is imperative
  • How you can start transitioning to a skills-based workforce
  • How your recognition program data can be a quick win and ongoing tool to gathering skills data
