ATD AFRICA LEARNING & DEVELOPMENT CONFERENCE

Future-proofing your workforce to be ready for what’s next

The pandemic had an immense impact on learning and talent development and businesses as a whole. The unexpected shift to remote work and increased digitalisation caused employee skill set requirements to change. As a result, organisations are experiencing skills gaps within their workforces.

According to a McKinsey & Company survey, 87 percent of organisations are experiencing skills gaps currently or expect them within the next five years. To overcome these skills gaps, organisations continue to reskill and upskill their workforces. Talent and learning professionals are responsible for redesigning the global workforce to address the new demands of the world.

To address the changes and needs of the future, this respected industry event developed by ATD and KR provides a platform for learning and talent development professionals to connect, collaborate, and stay up to date with talent development trends and best practices. This event will bring together thought leaders, innovators, and practitioners to assist in solving some of today’s challenges as we learn from one another.

By attending the ATD Africa Learning and Talent Development Conference, you will hear best practices and company case studies and gain insight into the talent initiatives likely to have the greatest impact going into 2023 and beyond. You will obtain the most current, relevant knowledge to be successful and competitive in an ever-changing workplace. Gain the necessary tools to strengthen your skill set, learning function, and organisation so that you are positioned to accelerate into the future.
