Upskilling - where do we go from here?

"boost up your skills"

Upskilling Through Continuous Learning

The World Economic Forum estimates that 50% of employees will need to be reskilled by 2025. The sudden workplace changes brought about in 2020 warranted the workforce to wear multiple hats in a short time to perform at their jobs. One of the key areas of change was the tech adoption that shot through the roof in the last 7-8 months across industries. With remote work coming into force, the shift to a virtual setting was inevitable.

However, this digital shift uncovered the IT and technical skill gaps amongst the remote workforce as troubleshooting technical issues on their own became an issue. To address this, L&D teams need to formulate continuous learning programs to upskill and reskill employees to stay relevant during the changing times. By closely working with business unit heads and identifying the skill gaps aligned to the business goals, L&D teams must build sustainable employee upskilling and reskilling programs that prepare them to be future-ready and in turn drive business growth.
