In order to achieve true enterprise transformation, businesses today need to be focused on building a culture of learning centred around upskilling their talent in power skills and in-demand tech that they need to be successful. By investing in the development of their people, organizations can build sustainable workforce, one that performs and adapts as the organization does — resulting in business growth. But how do companies manage business growth while also supporting their team’s individual goals?

On September 28th, join us at our Perspectives Reception in Edinburgh, where we will discuss how to assess and measure talent development across the organization.
