Millennials have introduced different needs, skills and attitudes to the workforce. This generation is increasingly looking for purpose and happiness in their work and have a heightened focus on personal development. This has influenced organisational models and the skills and attitudes required for employees to be successful. Within organisations, there has been a growing mindset of entrepreneurship and being critical instead of accepting things at face value.
What are 21st Century Skills? How can we take these 21st century skills into consideration within our working environment? What is important to know about the 21st century attitude and work culture? How can we develop and accommodate these skills? How can we increase an understanding among an intercultural and inter-generational workforce?
Over the course of 45 minutes, Els Brouwer and Edith Punt discussed these questions and more about 21st Century Skills.
