What Bosses Want

Advertisement for COMPASS Conversations

As the future of work is increasingly volatile, uncertain, complex, and ambiguous (VUCA), many jobs are taken over or completely transformed by new technologies whilst new jobs are formed for which we are unable to predict today. Are paper qualifications all we need?

COMPASS Conversations: What Bosses Want was a plenary session that invited 3 bosses from notable firms to share with us what makes an attractive and effective young employee.

The session explored the benefits of qualifications and, more importantly, the rising importance of soft skills, values and attitudes that will make young employees ready for the VUCA future.
