The Value of a Learning Mindset in the New Skills Economy


Published on

Cornerstone has been spending a lot of time gazing into our crystal ball and thinking about the future. More specifically, how organisations like yours can navigate the future and prepare for the emerging Skills Economy. The way we see it, we are at a critical juncture where the world is experiencing a major shift in the way everyone works and learns.

The most successful companies continually reinvent themselves during these times of disruption. And continually developing their talent is the differentiator. No matter what sector or industry, increasing employee's knowledge, skills, and abilities in this continually changing environment is fundamental in futureproofing success.

In our webinar, we explore the increasingly fluid nature of learning, the skills workers will need to learn, and how leaders can build a culture of learning from the top down.
