Navigating the GenAI Era: Enabling organisational transformation with skill-focused strategies

The advent of AI has begun – according to a report by McKinsey, GenAI could potentially contribute $2.6 trillion to $4.4 trillion in productivity value across industries, boosting the overall impact of AI by 15 to 40% and unlocking 35-70% productivity gains to fuel transformative change.

With generative AI altering how we perceive and carry out work, forward-thinking HR leaders are being entrusted with driving this change forward, and this requires not only understanding GenAI fundamentals but also transforming the approach to workforce upskilling. It is crucial for organisations and their leaders to actively provide employees with the necessary skills to navigate this era.

Recognizing the significance of skills in this transformation, many leaders are prioritizing the transition to a skills-based organisational model, one that integrates skills into talent processes, fostering a more adaptable and responsive workforce. For example, such organisations no longer rely solely on degrees and past experiences for hiring and promotion decisions but rather emphasize verified skills.

We recently held a webinar, in partnership with People Matters, to build a comprehensive framework for addressing urgent skilling use cases across different domains. It convened a panel of leading HR leaders on how organisations can ensure their workforce remains agile, innovative, and well-equipped to tackle the Gen-AI tsunami.

Some of the talking points include:

  • Harnessing the potential of GenAI and adopting a skills-centric approach to workforce development and learning
  • Importance of structured learning pathways tailored to different skill levels and job roles within the organisation
  • The shared responsibility of enabling organisational transformation through GenAI
