Online Events Archive

Multimedia for Learning Online Conference 2020 - August 5, 2020

Stacy Adams

Head of Marketing

Reskilling workers allows businesses to be agile in the face of constant technological change, while investing in and showing loyalty to their existing workforce. Rather than hiring or outsourcing for every new skill, companies can train current, trusted employees to handle the shifts in their industry, whether small or seismic.

In this session we’ll discuss upskilling and reskilling, as well as the emotional and financial benefits of training your existing workforce to meet the ever-changing demands of our technology-driven work environment. You’ll learn about three main skill areas that global consulting firm McKinsey believes are critical to the future of work—social and emotional intelligence, technological skills, and cognitive skills—and how you can employ training that addresses each of these in-demand talents. We’ll then dive deeper into how video training is an ideal way to bridge competence differences in your workforce to achieve proficiency in learning new skills. You'll learn how video takes advantage of our cognitive processes to achieve better learning outcomes. Then we’ll bring it all together with specific examples of how video—from “how-to” to explaining complex concepts—is delivering successful learning outcomes for today’s largest companies.

In this session you will learn:

  • Why reskilling makes sense, financially and emotionally
  • Three skill areas critical to the future of work
  • How to employ video training to achieve successful reskilling
