Coursera for Business has partnered with Training Magazine on an upcoming webinar: “Is Your Workforce Ready for 2020?“, on Wednesday, June 13th at 9 am PST.
Work looks completely different today than it did just a generation ago. Where we work looks different, how we work has changed, and the skills any given employee needs are evolving faster than we can keep up. Employers especially need workers skilled in software development, marketing and sales management, engineering, web development, and financial management, but those jobs are taking longer and longer to fill. On top of those open jobs, employers will need to fill roles by 2020 in emerging fields like robotics, data science, automation, and content curation.
The skills gap is widening and the solution doesn’t belong to one player working alone. We believe that employers, universities, and individuals will all need to invest in lifelong learning and creative ways to collaborate.
In this webinar, Alex Cowan, Batten Fellow & Adjunct Faculty and University of Virginia Darden School of Business, and Ian Stuart, Director of Learning and Development at Coursera, will discuss the framework to move everyone forward, together.
