Short summary

BY 2050 there will be 95 million fewer people in the labour market, according to the UN’s World Population Prospect. In a report published by the World Economic Forum, they estimate that 85 million existing jobs will be replaced in the next 3 years by new jobs. But how come the labour shortage is ever increasing? And what can we do to rethink and address the lack of candidates in our organisations?

Dr. Marcia Goddard and Charlotte Melkert talk about shifting from experience to potential, which factors are predictive or workplace success, how to measure potential and behaviour, how to drive change in addressing the shortage in your organisation, what diversifying your talent pool looks like and how to go beyond that.
