‘New Narratives: Innovation for Jobs’ is a series by i4j (Innovation for Jobs) and the GPA exploring perspectives on important topics that will impact the future of work, jobs and employment.
About i4j: (iiij.org/i4j) Innovation for Jobs conferences bring together individuals from the public and private sectors to discuss the changing economy. "We engage in initiatives creating structures for developing shared language across silos. The starting point for any innovation is the creation of shared language, enabling stakeholders and change agents to interact horizontally."
This film questions how the economy matches talent to opportunity. Do employers know who the best person for their job would be? Do individuals know all the opportunities that their skills might qualify them for? Are we taking advantage of the wealth of data that exists around employment or are too many employers and individuals still in the dark? What options exist for us to improve or revolutionize the ways in which we enable meaningful, fulfilling work?
