As the economy begins to open up again, the only certainty is change: not all of what happened before will continue and businesses – and their workforces – will have to adapt.
This Training Journal webinar, held in partnership with upskilling platform Degreed, will look at how businesses can do just that by increasing skills mobility across their workforce.
Some trends are already clear: user data from Degreed reveals a rise in workers valuing transferable skills that can serve across a variety of roles and have a longer shelf life. These include skills like Excel, leadership and communication (up 4%, 5%, and 15% respectively), while there has been a sharper decrease in searches for Python, Java (both down 20%) and machine learning (down 36%).
Join Todd Tauber, VP Product Marketing at Degreed and Caroline Styr, Senior Executive, Center for the Future of Work at Cognizant discussing how businesses that invest in reskilling will build greater agility, responsiveness to sudden market changes and remain competitive.
