In our final episode of Series One, Emily Ramji chats to Janice Burns and Todd Tauber from Degreed about how organizations can develop a more coherent “skills” strategy. As organizations are forced to rapidly adapt to changing landscapes, the need to identify, develop and redeploy skills has never been greater.

For individuals, how their skills are recognized, developed and used underpins employee experience, organizational culture, well-being, and performance and ultimately shapes their career.
