How to bridge your company’s digital skills gap
With the way we work changing dramatically over the course of the last two years, it’s necessary to reflect on how working practices have been effected. While, working from home and flexible working patterns have come to the forefront, the increasing digital skills gap has remained an ever-present threat to companies.
As technology continues to develop at a fast pace, employers are looking to fill the latest tech roles. However, there is a clear shortage of candidates with the relevant digital skills. With the high costs of traditional education, the ability to learn valuable digital skills is determined by socio-economic status. Therefore, people from underrepresented backgrounds tend to miss out on educational opportunities. As a result, the skills gap continues to grow, forcing companies to hire candidates from a depleted talent pool.
By closing the digital skills gap, companies can add long-term value to their business, while also driving inclusion and diversity in the workplace. A sustained level of investment is needed for the skills gap to be closed. As the number of people acquiring digital skills increases, more tech talent will be generated, something that is vital for the recovery of the global economy and long-term economic growth.
