Skilling Solutions: Closing Gaps, and Discovering Opportunities

The adoption of new technologies like automation, artificial intelligence and robotics in the workplace have contributed to a growing employee skills gap. Now layer on the need for professional and leadership skills that are also important. That’s the difference between existing competencies and the skills that will be required to meet the future needs of the evolving workplace. The results of recent global workforce surveys confirm this: 

  • 77% of workers say they want to learn new skills or completely retrain (PWC Global Workforce Hopes and Fears Survey 2023)

  • 53% of executives say reskilling is the best way to close the capabilities gap, yet nearly the same percentage agree these programs often fall short of expectations (McKinsey Quarterly, The Skillful Corporation)

  • 39% of workers think their job will be obsolete within 5 years (PWC Global Workforce Hopes and Fears Survey 2023)

At DeVryWorks, we see skills gaps as opportunities. Employee upskilling training and development programs with customized learning pathways can help your enterprise grow and your people thrive:

  • Upskilling along strategic learning pathways can fill the gaps and keep your talent succession plans on track.

  • Reskilling can provide the knowledge employees need to move into a different department or function, filling those gaps and giving you the agility to rapidly respond to new opportunities and market conditions.

And it’s more than just tech skills. Coursework in our learning pathways typically includes workplace skills that can contribute to enhanced belonging, leadership development and improved employee retention.
