We are in the throes of an upskilling revolution with digitalisation changing how value is created, how work is done and the skills needed. New skillsets are needed to work alongside machines or to create value that cannot be accomplished by machines. Yet only 7% of executives surveyed by McKinsey thought their organisations are fully prepared to deal with this skill gap. Increasingly CEOs worldwide are concerned that the lack of essential skills threatens the growth of their organization.
How is your organisation responding to this upskilling revolution? What is your organisation’s learning and development (L&D) strategy? What about your employees? Are they ready for a rapidly changing future?
