Talent will continue to be one of the most critical assets of any organisation as they invent and reinvent their business strategies. Building a future ready workforce is easier said than done, especially in light of the World Economic Forum reporting a change in 42% of core skills required to perform existing jobs in the year 2022. This demands organisations to take a clear look at the skill gaps that they must close to future proof themselves against any and all potential disruptions. One key solution in gaining a competitive edge in this talent hunt is by building the right partnerships and investing more in campus hiring. With industry-academia collaboration taking centre stage in closing skill gaps through acquiring the best of fresher talent, the current priority of organisations that would best serve their business interests is to find not just a future ready workforce but a company ready workforce through campus hiring.
With the intention of driving this discussion forward, People Matters and Sunstone Eduversity are excited to bring to you a session as part of an ongoing series of ‘Talent Talks’ that will delve deep into how building the right partnerships can bring in the skilled entry level workforce that companies actively seek. Some of the key points that will be covered include:
