Investing in Skilling Efforts to Prepare for the Future of WorkShare:
A new Forbes piece from Rebecca Henderson explores why organizations need to invest in and improve skilling efforts to prepare for the future of work. In this article Henderson identifies barriers that keep organizations from easily reskilling their workforce. One challenge is the lack of guidance and direction for reskilling efforts.
While many companies struggle with developing plans to address the skills gap, it is clear that organizations can benefit from individuals leading these efforts. In other words, with a trained talent professional leading reskilling initiatives companies can begin to address the skills gaps they face. Helping workers acquire new competencies will address many challenges companies have been experiencing and lead to a stronger workforce.
