About this Masterclass:

The world, as we know, has turned upside down.  While this is the case without a doubt, global economies and companies – large and small – will recover eventually.  While this process unfolds, it is becoming clear that some jobs will lose relevance while others become critically important during COVID-19 and beyond.  If you have talented employees working for you in areas of expertise that are becoming less and less relevant, you could consider reskilling them and use this talent elsewhere in the business.  Reskilling is fast emerging as an excellent talent strategy in the business right now.
