University of Phoenix leadership participates in Future Workplace Virtual Summit

By Sharla Hooper

University of Phoenix leader Ruth Veloria, chief strategy and customer officer, joins the Future Workplace Virtual Summit: Working and Learning in Your Post-Pandemic Future, October 19-20. The summit features senior HR, Talent and Learning Leaders and aims to help companies optimize working and learning for the post-pandemic future, with a focus on creating a healthy, connected hybrid workplace and learning technologies that accelerate growth.

With current competition for talent in the workplace, companies are seeking ways to differentiate their offerings to employees, current and future.

Ms. Veloria will present on the findings of the University’s Career Optimism IndexTM study and what it means for corporate learning, addressing how companies can offer more access to internal career mobility and identify new skills needed for the future.

“The Career Optimism IndexTM provides key insights about American workers’ attitudes, beliefs, and perceptions of what their career means to them and their employers. There is a lot at stake for employers. Employees want to grow in their careers and need support, and the employers that provide that support have an advantage,” stated Ms. Veloria. “The Future Workplace Virtual Summit provides a forum where we can address fresh new ideas about our workplace evolution and how learning, upskilling pathways, and career mobility will be vital to that process.”

The summit will be held in a virtual learning format over two days with the featured session on “The Evolving Role of Learning in Workforce Transformation: How the CLO Will Drive Business Growth.”

The summit registration is available at Future Workplace Virtual Summit.

About the Career Optimism Index™

The Career Optimism Index™ study is one of the most comprehensive studies of Americans’ personal career perceptions to-date. The University of Phoenix Career Institute will conduct this research annually to provide insights on current workforce trends and to help identify solutions to support and advance American careers. For the first annual study, more than 5,000 U.S adults were surveyed about how they feel about their careers at this moment in time, including their concerns, their challenges, and the degree to which they are optimistic about core aspects of their careers, their advancement in the future. The study was conducted among a diverse, nationally representative, sample of U.S. adults among a robust sample to allow for gender, generational, racial, and socioeconomic differences and includes additional analysis of workers in the top twenty media markets across the country to uncover geographic nuances.
