According to Feon Ang, Vice President for Talent and Learning Solutions Asia Pacific, LinkedIn, “As digitalisation continues to transform the workforce at a rapid speed, certain skills are becoming less in-demand simply because different skill sets are required to navigate such transformation. It is therefore important for organisations to have a deep understanding of their current talent pool, and how to evolve it for their long-term business goals. Helping current talent to upskill or reskill early can help organisations ensure that their future talent needs are met.”

 

She adds,“While we encourage organisations to tap on real-time data and insights to help inform them about trends in the talent marketplace, we also believe that embracing a culture of learning is just as important for organisations to remain resilient amidst a rapidly changing workforce.”. “At the same time, employees need to be empowered and motivated to learn on their own terms, given difficulties in finding time and accessing opportunities, said Ang.” To peruse the report in all its glory swing by here.
