Today’s organizations are digitally aware. They invest in the upskilling and reskilling of their talent aiming to broaden their skillset through the acquisition of new knowledge and practical tools in order for each executive to be in a position to successfully respond to the demands posed from the ongoing digital transformation and artificial intelligence means (in both office and virtual environments).
Employee upskilling and reskilling are at the forefront of an organization’s survival, accounting for the current and future technological advancements that are already reinventing the world of work and giving rise to new roles, lines, and forms of work. Each employee, irrespective of his/her age or workplace position, needs to continue developing professionally by allocating time to expand knowledge in their area of expertise (upskilling), and / or to acquiring new knowledge and skills and advance in a different area of expertise (reskilling). Within the current, rapidly changing, and digitally transforming work environment, features of remote work and e-training—among others, are dominating, placing the investment in continued education more pressing than ever for the competitiveness of both the organization and the employee.
