How are you adapting to the new world of work? Gain valuable insights from LinkedIn Impact 2020: A Virtual Conference
With COVID-19 fundamentally changing the way companies operate, talent professionals, brands and candidates themselves need to ask some hugely important questions on these changes and what that means for them as they look toward the future. How has the global economic outlook changed and what does this mean locally? What’s the future of employee engagement? What will recruiting look like in a virtual world?
At our LinkedIn Impact 2020 series, we brought together some of the world's leading brands and talent leaders to discuss these questions and how they're thinking about shaping their organisations to adapt to the new normal. This content is now available on-demand, so viewers can reap the benefits wherever they are, whenever it suits them.
The global keynote sessions covered a breadth of topics that provide the actionable insights businesses need to move forward:

Insightful regional perspectives
Alongside the global keynotes, speakers from Asia-Pacific, Europe and the Americas outlined what the changes have meant for their respective regions and how they are adapting. What’s clear is that accurate data and a deep understanding of your company and people are essential to success. As Lindsay Brady, Insights Director, EMEAL, LinkedIn says, "The demand across the hiring landscape has changed, so now is a great time to invest in and encourage learning and think about the skills you need today and tomorrow to start building a workforce that is adaptable and resilient.”
"In the US we wiped out as many jobs in 2 months as were created since the beginning of 2011. The jobs that come back will require new skills, and adaptability from people"
