Mission Talent in the spotlight at SPIEF-2019

Saint Petersburg International economic forum (SPIEF) is a unique event in the world of business and economics that has been held since 1997. Every year, the St. Petersburg International Economic Forum serves as a platform for the discussion of key issues in the world economy, regional integration, and the development of new industrial and technological sectors, as well as of the global challenges facing the world.

For the first time the Mission Talent initiative got in the spotlight of such a top-ranked event. On June 7th, within the discussion panel “Human Capital for the Transition to the Economy of the Future” Rosatom CEO Alexey Likhachev has issued an invitation to world leaders from politics, business and education to join a debate to urgently implement human-centred solutions that can help solve the widening global skills gap and worsening talent shortage. Around 6% of the world’s GDP has been lost due to these issues according to latest research unveiled at a panel discussion attended by leading experts representing governments, business, public foundations, such as Peter Altmaier, Federal Minister for Economic Affairs and Energy, German Federal Government, Simon Bartley, President, WorldSkills International, Mikhail Karisalov, General Director, SIBUR,Natalie Kyriacou, Founder, My Green World, Mikhail Kotyukov, Minister of Science and Higher Education of the Russian Federation, Nenad Popovic, Minister of innovations and technological development of Serbia,Svetlana Chupsheva, General Director, Agency for Strategic Initiatives (ASI), Alexey Likhachev, CEO, Rosatom, Vladislav Butenko, Executive Partner, BCG.

The Mission: Talent five human-centred principles were presented by Mr. Likhachev to discuss further at the WorldSkills Conference 2019 in Kazan:

  • Skills of the future (everyone should be equipped with future proof basic skills – including cognitive, social, cultural and digital)
  • Self-sustainability (everyone has the right to follow a unique and individual career path during their entire professional development)
  • Skills liquidity (information on job vacancies should be easily accessible around the world; employees hired only on skills and experience, regardless of education, gender, race, social status or physical health)
  • Labor market transparency (labour mobility, flexible and remote ‘virtual’ employment should be available to all, regardless of current place of residence)
  • Diversity of values (the workplace and working conditions should support the professional and personal development of each employee, regardless of their values and beliefs)

Which human-centred principle do you believe the most challenging to implement?
