Skills Matter: What Your Organization Needs to Survive and Thrive


Oracle HCM Cloud recently held the Skills Virtual Summit. Discover the lessons learnt including insights from Fujifilm, McKinsey & Company, and Children’s Hospital of Omaha.

Unforeseen crises and new work-life paradigms have made two things clear. First, the future of work has dramatically shifted and continues to face massive changes. And second, in the face of such upheaval, an organization’s skills are its greatest asset in building workforce agility and preparing for the future.

Oracle’s recent virtual summit, Skills Matter: What Your Organization Needs to Survive and Thrive, brought together HR thought leaders and practitioners to discuss the importance of understanding and leveraging skills across the workforce to drive business agility.

Unleashing your talent potential

Oracle’s Yvette Cameron interviewed leading industry experts, Aaron De Smet, senior partner at McKinsey, and Ray Wang, principal analyst and founder at Constellation Research. They discussed the keys to creating a dynamic approach to skills, competency development, and the phases of skill transformation.

Optimizing your skills strategy

Jacely Voon, chief people officer, Fujifilm Business Innovation, and Janel Allen, senior vice president and chief people officer, Children’s Hospital and Medical Center, Omaha, shared best practices for creating an effective skills strategy. These included anticipating skills shifts, facing industry-specific challenges, and closing skills gaps internally rather than through external hiring.
