Pinpoint Your Endangered Skills: Understand where to focus your upskilling efforts in 2021 (On Demand)

Recent Degreed research, the State of Skills 2021: Endangered, found that current economic uncertainty due to COVID-19 is accelerating the demand for new skills. 60% of managers and workers feel that they need to upskill as a result of the crisis. Yet, nearly half of businesses reduced their upskilling opportunities during the crisis.

As a result, the already widening skills gap in organisations will grow even wider - and it’s putting more pressure on workers and their mental health.

  • 50% of workers feel that a lack of confidence in their skills makes their job more stressful
  • 40% feel that this impacts their productivity
  • 36% of them say that they are more likely to leave their employer if they don't see a commitment to their upskilling

So, how can organisations better align their upskilling strategy with their business’s objectives to improve skill-levels, loyalty and productivity?
