Applying the Future of Work

Ian Bailie will discuss Cisco’s journey towards a more data-driven mindset in HR and how they have scaled this approach globally.

Cisco is able to analyze millions of job postings across sectors and geographies to get a real-time view of the job market and to identify and stay ahead of market trends, including benchmarking their skill profile against key competitors and leveraging market forecasts to flag emerging skills.
