Whether businesses were ready or not, the COVID-19 pandemic started to shift the way business was done and any gaps in training and preparation – particularly around remote work, collaboration, crisis communication, and digital platforms – started to have an impact right away. Many organizations have pivoted to a successful model that works for the time being but might not be sustainable in the long term, particularly as many businesses have either been subject to hiring freezes or downsizing.
From enabling employees to be increasingly productive and efficient, supporting digital initiatives, and cross-training employees to support teams during a hiring freeze, reskilling (and upskilling) employees is one of the most important areas to focus on through the end of the year and into next.
There are several methods to reducing skill gaps in your workforce, and with so much ongoing uncertainty, businesses need to emphasize learning and agility to remain competitive. Organizations can use several different methods to support employee development.
