  Orlando Ashford on Talentism

 

 Orlando Ashford, president of Seattle-based Holland America Line, and the author of Talentism, will be speaking about the provocative thesis of his book. Today, more than one-third of employers worldwide cannot fill all available jobs. Yet an estimated 202 million eligible workers are unemployed across the globe. By 2025, there will be 90 - 95 million more low-skill workers than employers require and 38 - 40 million fewer workers with higher education than employers need. We are challenged by the disconnect between the skills people HAVE and the skills employers NEED. The prognosis seems grim, but solutions are already at hand and are developing more day by day.

 

 

 

Talentism by Orlando Ashford looks at how a shifting paradigm, enabled by technology and the power of human networks, can help bridge the skills gap, improve business performance, and lead to the betterment of society at large.
