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’ objectives to improve skill-levels, loyalty and productivity? 

Join Louise Anderson, VP, Australia and New Zealand at Degreed to learn how to prepare your workforce over the coming year. She will talk about:

  • The key results of the State of Skills 2021 report across the world and unique findings in Australia and New Zealand 
  • How this aligns with current and future upskilling trends
  • How to better align your skills strategy with business objectives 
  • How this approach will help your workforce succeed in 2021
