Workforce Transformation in the Public Sector

Building a future ready workforce for the new reality

Thursday, January 21, 2021
(Start: 12:00pm ET / 9:00 PT)

Agenda Overview:

Uncertain times, changing demographics and emerging technologies have expedited the need for digital transformation within the public sector. 

To cope with the pandemic, the public sector had to rapidly mobilize their workforce overnight to meet the needs and expectations of citizens, giving HR the opportunity to build a crisis ready workforce. As the world adapts and repositions itself in a digital and data-driven workspace, public sector agencies must work towards building a workforce that is equipped with the right talent and the right skills. Adapting employees’ skills and roles to the post-pandemic nature of working will be crucial to ensure resilience and agility across all levels of the workforce.  As the generation of Boomers prepare to retire, the need to create an innovative and inclusive culture that suits the next-generation workforce has never been more apparent.

Public Sector Network’s Workforce Transformation in the Public Sector Event will bring together public sector leaders to discuss the ways that Human resources can drive modern transformative change and shape the future of government.
