By 2030, there will be a global human talent shortage of more than 85 million people. According to Accenture, failing to meet the skills demand could put $11.5 trillion in potential GDP growth at risk over the next decade. However, with the threat of a talent shortage, many organizations overinvested in hiring, and those that did so now have to make difficult decisions. Hiring for new skills while laying off workers is not a sustainable solution. Buying skills is no longer the solution. Today, organizations must build and bridge instead. This session highlights the key practices and initiatives organizations has to take for building a sustainable workforce.

The HR digital revolution is here and now, and organizations are looking for newer, more effective, and productive ways to meet the evolving demands of doing business - agility, speed and accuracy. Among these, upskilling has emerged as a key area that can provide workers a path to higher-paying jobs while increasing diversity throughout the organization, as well as address skills gaps as varied as leadership ability and data analysis. While upskilling is primarily used to address skills deficiencies, it yields other benefits, too, including strong employee retention. This session discusses each of these aspects in detail.

From artificial intelligence assistants to smart data forms, ever-evolving hiring and matching platforms, AI products are transforming the way talent acquisition teams operate. Given than Human Intelligence (HI) guides these advances, ensuring no discrimination and zero bias during interviews, creating more-balanced interview questions is work in progress. This session is aimed at bringing out contrarian views on whether this is a problem at all, and if yes, how HI can be used to mitigate unconscious bias from seeping into tech-based hiring systems as well as other metrics used to monitor performance and aid career progression.

This session will delve into ways to make the most of a limited pool by opting for a skills-first learning approach.
