The Skillset Economy
Today’s workforce expects more from their employers than compensation alone. This new generation of employees values their own personal and professional development as much as their monthly paycheck. The companies who meet this challenge with an evolved learning program adapted to each learner’s personalized needs will attract and retain the best talent.
In this presentation, Jon Tota defines this new Skillset Economy and explains why developing skillsets learned into competencies earned matters now. He will provide an overview of the digital media tools you can leverage to personalize your learning program. And you’ll see it in action through case studies of companies who are effectively developing the most valuable resource they have – their people.
Jon Tota began his career as a business analyst and trainer in the financial services industry and co-founded Edulence in 2002 to deliver digital media training to financial advisors. Jon created Knowledgelink as one of the first subscription-based online video training services and evolved it into a software platform to help experts and corporations educate employees and customers anywhere. Knowledgelink has gone on to deliver hundreds of thousands of online courses each year to over half a million users and become the leading video training platform in multiple vertical industries.
The team at Edulence scaled the Knowledgelink business to earn several industry awards over the years, including consecutive years on the Inc. 5000 list of fastest growing companies in America. In 2020, Edulence was acquired by eLearning Brothers to make Knowledgelink the LMS platform for one of the most trusted brands in the Learning & Development space. Today, Jon leads product design for LMS/LXP platforms at eLearning Brothers and serves as a product evangelist for the company to help customers get the most value from their eLearning solutions.
In 2016, Jon founded Syntax + Motion, a video and podcast production studio in Burlington, VT where the team has produced 7 original podcast shows available on all major channels. For the past 3 years and over 100 episodes, Jon has hosted the popular weekly Learning & Development interview show, Learning Life with Jon Tota.
From 2017-2020, Jon served as the global Virtual Learning Chair for Entrepreneurs' Organization. In this role, he launched EO's first virtual learning platform for over 14,000 members in 188 chapters worldwide and led the 2019 production of the week-long EO 24/7 live virtual event for over 60,000 online viewers.
