Keynote talk at the What Works Alberta Conference 2004, Building a Skilled Labour Force. Edmonton, February 18, 2004.
Shaping the kind of workforce and workplaces Alberta will need in 2014 requires labour market stakeholders to collaborate on creative policies and programs. Dr. Lowe provides a starting point for this collaboration by outlining how major social, economic, demographic and organizational pressures require innovative approaches to workforce and workplace renewal. He will argue that building a skilled labour force in Alberta depends on having a compelling vision of the kind of workplace that will support high skills and high performance. Dr. Lowe will challenge you to create that vision and to think about how you can achieve it.
This conference is sponsored by Alberta Human Resources and Employment and Human Resources Development Canada.
