Summary "What worries you most about your job? If you're like the thousands of people surveyed around the world, it is not layoffs, economic uncertainty, or technological change that is your main concern. The number one concern of employees around the world is their position becoming obsolete. They have a right to be concerned. Industries are shifting, companies compete and recruit staff globally, and employees report they don't get the training they need to do their jobs today, much less prepare for tomorrow. Sell-By-Date is written for anyone who wants to ensure they have the necessary skills to face a future workplace that is continuously changing. Based on a 27-country survey of both executives and employees, the book provides advice and practical recommendations for people to ensure they are prepared to compete in the future. Inspiring and impactful, the book identifies how to prepare yourself and your workplace to remain competitive, creative and inspiring. Sell-By-Date provides practical advice and evidence-based guidance on how to obtain tomorrow's skills and create a sustainable work future"-- Provided by publisher
