Rethinking the Innovation Potential of Occupations

April 10, 2019 11:00 AM ET [11:00] (New York), 03:00 PM UTC [15:00] | (1 hr) | Time Zone Converter

Slowing economic performance in the US, Euro Area, and China is closely correlated to falling labor force growth rates in these regions. To overcome aging worker populations, both mature economies and businesses must become more innovative.

Join our expert economists as they first discuss the factors driving slower growth across mature economies and then take a closer look at The Innovation Potential of Occupations Dashboard (IPO Dashboard) which can help companies to:

  • Identify sources of company innovation, including the ability to gain a broader perspective on who is responsible for organizational innovation
  • Determine how employees in occupations beyond R&D play a role in the innovation process 
  • Identify ways of evaluating the innovation competency of employees

Who Should Attend: Executives interested in learning about the key drivers of global economic performance in 2019 and which occupations play the biggest role in driving innovation across an organization.
