Session: Nurturing future talent by building relevant competences for the information age
Building relevant competences for future organisations
Research findings on the future of work indicate an altered paradigm in the future. The inclusion of digital resources in all facets of an enterprise are redefining the way organisations will function. This will also have an implication on the way human resources will contribute. Today we are at the cross-roads of innovation in information technology with the internet of things, artificial intelligence, and virtual reality ready to consume our professional lives. The information era will need people with more non-linear, adaptable, and creative problem-solving capabilities. Digital dexterity and entrepreneurial intelligence will be the hallmark of future talent, as manifested in every work engagement. At the same time, the basic nuances of human behaviour of passion and empathy will be the all-powerful connecting link. Therefore, nurturing talent to ensure relevance in malleable work environments would need a systemic change and would be the singular determinant of success for the 21st century organisation.
