As digital transformation gains momentum, new careers are opening up in just about every sector of the Canadian economy. How are business leaders rethinking the ways they screen, hire and develop talent for the new economy? What strategies are helping them retain and support employee success and wellness, especially through the ongoing challenges of the pandemic?

On March 10, The Globe and Mail presented a webcast examining how organizations are embracing new approaches to talent and career development in response to the shifting economy and changing workplace norms.

Rita Trichur, senior business writer and columnist with The Globe and Mail led the panel discussion featuring Karen Collins, chief talent officer with BMO; Paula Allen, senior vice-president and global leader of research and total wellbeing with LifeWorks; Mohammed Chahdi, director of global human resources with Dell Technologies; and Jim Stanford, economist and director with the Centre for Future Work.
