Upskilling the Workforce for the New Era: the Challenge of Employee Engagement

19 października 2020

Join us and 5.000 Change-Makers at the European SDG Summit 2020 for the biggest sustainability event of the year, covering a wide array of sustainability topics in 55 high-level sessions. From 26-30 October, we will work together to tackle climate change in light of Covid-19 and deliver the Sustainable Development Goals in line with the direction set by Commission President von der Leyen.

While upskilling represents a cost for the company, it is also an opportunity. Teaching new skills to vulnerable workers is key to ensure the productivity and long-term employability of a company’s workforce. As a result, the company will benefit from increased competitiveness and improved performance in the global markets.

As the COVID-19 pandemic accelerated the digitalisation of work and services, are companies and employees ready to upskill, evolve, and change? Many companies are still struggling to put their upskilling strategy into action due to the internal resistance of the management, to make the necessary investments, and of some employees, who are reluctant to embrace new tasks.

Join this roundtable to discover the latest best practices to pursue upskilling effectively. The session is inspired by the project Upskill 4 Future and the work done by French, Italian, Polish, Portuguese, and Spanish companies with the support of their national CSR organisations.

This year, the European SDG Summit will focus on “Impactful Partnerships to Build Back Better”. Join us!
