We’ve all heard apocalyptic warnings about automation and numerous technology innovations displacing millions in today's workdorce.
Against that backdrop, KPMG is spending $450 million on a 55-acre learning, development, and innovation facility in Lake Nona, a master-planned community in Orlando, Florida. Upon completion in 2019, it will be able to accommodate 1,000 people at a time in a four-star environment.
It won’t be just for KPMG staff. Clients and other companies will be able to send their employees for training, or to work with KPMG teams in an innovation lab to solve their toughest challenges. It promises to be an example of how businesses can help prepare workers to adapt in a world where many of the jobs that will exist in 10 years haven’t been invented yet.
KPMG Chairman and CEO Lynne Doughtie is especially passionate about investing in lifelong learning and developing future generations of leaders.
