Employees must continuously develop skills to advance in their jobs, especially as the nature of work changes. Increasingly, employers set the curriculum for their employees and provide the training. What does this mean for the transferability of skills across jobs? Why should companies invest in employees who might leave? And what is the role of post-secondary education for upskilling and re-skilling the workforce? Experts will examine how learning can be better aligned to the world of work.
