KLM is pioneering a revolutionary way to deal with this issue by using a more data-driven approach in strategic workforce planning. In their view the coming scarcity of experienced personnel can be combatted by more efficiently matching people and skills by using AI / Data Science. Through better use of the data the company already has, KLM will be able to easier match the skills-languages of worker and employer which enables them to tackle the skills gap more efficiently, working multi-disciplinary using the build/buy/borrow methodology. And the data will even allow KLM to match specific individuals to specific jobs. Join us at this Vision Dinner on the 17th of January to listen to Annelies and Yvette’s approach to these issues. There will be ample opportunity for networking, both over dinner and afterwards, so be sure to sign up!
The Province of North Brabant aims to be a pioneer in the field of data and digitalization. Currently, the province is taking steps to address policy issues in areas such as mobility, environment, and energy using data. While the potential of data is evident, the transition from data to insights and subsequently formulating more effective policies presents challenges. This includes the need to bring together the often still separate worlds of data experts and policymakers and to adapt policy processes accordingly. It also requires the development of new knowledge and skills. During this Vision Dinner, Marcel Thaens, CIO at the Province of North Brabant, will share how he creates the conditions for optimal use of data. He will address topics such as how he encourages closer collaboration between policymakers and data experts. Additionally, he will discuss how he ensures the quality of data in the organization and how he manages ethical and legal aspects, especially in light of the upcoming mandatory algorithm registry. If you are interested in these themes, you are more than welcome to be inspired by Marcel's story and engage in conversation with him and the other participants!
