Most business agree that in a challenging business environment, they need the organization to build a capacity for taking on added jobs, advanced projects, and forward-moving business partnerships. This means recruiting the right people, training them in the skills that they lack, motivating them to perform, and keeping them engaged. Moreover, they need to learn and apply these new skills on a regular basis. That is the only way an organization can expect a year-on-year growth.
For example, skills in cloud computing, data science, software engineers, advanced manufacturing, automation, are some of the most wanted skills. And since these are only now taking precedence, most organizations will find that they do not yet have the expertise in these domains.
As a result, organizations are struggling to meet demand. The projections indicate that by , industries across the globe will face an acute shortage of skilled and educated workers.
Why? Because our modern training and development curriculums right through college has not yet accounted for this shift in demand for specific skills.
Clearly, an organization capable of employing, retaining, and developing a high-performing workforce, with such specialized skills will outperform its competitors – and isn’t that where eLearning should play a starring role?
