The demand for skills
The demand for skills in the workforce is changing rapidly due to a variety of factors. The overall number of employees in the sector is expected to decline over the next decade, but the demand for professional and managerial employees is forecast to increase. Additionally, there is an increasing demand for technicians and higher-level engineers. Remote working has become increasingly popular due to the pandemic, creating a need for upskilling and training in order to maintain performance. Companies are introducing new skills and training to make the transition back to the workplace smoother.
COVID-19 has also accelerated the adoption of fully digitized approaches to learning, allowing for greater personalization and cost-effectiveness. This shift towards digital learning has enabled companies to quickly adapt their training programs in response to changing demands in the labor market. Furthermore, it allows individuals more flexibility when it comes to acquiring new skills or updating existing ones. As such, digital learning can help bridge gaps between employers’ needs and workers’ abilities.
The manufacturer needs to provide certainly accurate, timely, up-to-date, but customized training for each region.
