Upskilling - Make your Workforce Future Fit

The world is turning faster and faster, forcing companies in all sectors to adapt their strategies. New technologies, expanded business areas and agile working modes require skills that were previously not (sufficiently) available. But where to get them? Why not utilise the existing potential of your employees? Only those who manage to take them along on the path to digital transformation and close skill gaps can successfully meet the challenges.

HR development meets upskilling. But how is it possible to familiarise a relevant number of employees with new or enhanced skills and establish a learning culture within the company? Further training and skills development have always been important, but should reach an ever-increasing number of employees in order to make a real difference across the board - so how do you scale the training on offer? As an organisation, how do you ensure that the right skills reach the right employees at the right time?
