The Skillset Economy: Leveraging Learning & Development Strategy to Win the Battle for Talent

The Fourth Industrial Revolution is upon us and our next generation workforce depends on corporate learning & development programs to level up their skillsets to compete with the advanced technology taking jobs away from people. 65% of the jobs our next gen workers will perform do not even exist yet! Adoption to our training programs will increase if our employees know their career path and can impact their own development through more learning. The companies who perfect this model will attract the best talent, develop their people more effectively and retain the highest performers.

Program Objectives:

After participating in the workshop, attendees will be able to identify the job roles most vulnerable to machine automation; design a career-pathed certification program to engage learners in their own skillset development; and infuse real-world rewards into learning programs to drive learner adoption and retention.

Picture of Jon TotaJon Tota began his career as a business analyst and trainer in the financial services industry and cofounded Edulence in 2002 to deliver digital media training to financial advisors. Jon created Knowledgelink as one of the first subscription-based online video training services and evolved it into a software platform to help experts and corporations educate employees and customers anywhere.

Knowledgelink has gone on to deliver hundreds of thousands of online courses each year to over half a million users and become the leading video training platform in multiple vertical industries. 

The team at Edulence scaled the Knowledgelink business to earn several industry awards over the years, including consecutive years on the Inc. 5000 list of fastest growing companies in America. In 2020, Edulence was acquired by eLearning Brothers to make Knowledgelink the LMS platform for one of the most trusted brands in the Learning & Development space. Today, Jon serves as a product evangelist for the company to help customers get the most value from their eLearning solutions.

In 2016, Jon founded Syntax + Motion, a video and podcast production studio in Burlington, VT where the team has produced 7 original podcast shows available on all major channels. For the past 3 years and over 100 episodes, Jon has hosted the popular weekly Learning & Development interview show, Learning Life with Jon Tota.

From 2017-2020, Jon served as the global Virtual Learning Chair for Entrepreneurs' Organization. In this role, he launched EO's first virtual learning platform for over 14,000 members in 188 chapters worldwide and led the 2019 production of the week-long EO 24/7 live virtual event for over 60,000 online viewers.

Jon shares his experience from two decades in the Learning & Development space and speaks frequently on the topics of learning experience design and knowledge product development.
