Employers are always looking for skilled workers but cite a significant skills gap in the talent pool available to them, particularly when it comes to IT skills. According to the Harvard Business Review
, 35% of 38,000 employers reported difficulty filling job vacancies due to lack of available talent.
Once hired, many employees commonly report that they have been given insufficient training to handle a constantly shifting workplace landscape. In fact, a mere 21% of respondents from an Accenture survey said that they had acquired new skills from formal training. Digital IQ has become an essential aspect of workplace learning, and potential employees want assurances that employers will not only provide them with engaging roles, but that they will invest in a culture of continuing development to support their personal career ambitions.
Ultimately, the world of work is currently facing a skills gap that is hampering performance in companies across the globe.
