What’s happening today has thrown lives and work into turmoil, but we’ve never adapted more quickly. What’s enabling some businesses to pivot in record time is being grounded in the technology needed to keep the workflow going, and the people who possess the digital skills to make it happen.
Digital skills were in high demand before Covid-19, part of the digital transformation some call Work 4.0, and that demand is increasing. As businesses scale, adjust, strategize, and aim for the future, their survival depends on workforce that’s skilled in digital skills — including analytics, data-driven decision making, and new and emerging technologies such as artificial intelligence and machine learning.
How do you create that workforce, as a startup, an SMB, as a Fortune 500? By understanding the nature of your business, assessing what you need to function, and identifying the gaps. And there are effective strategies to assess the digital skills of prospective hires today that accommodate a changed hiring landscape.
On this episode of #WorkTrends, sponsored by SAS, our guest is Sean O’Brien, Senior Vice President, Education at SAS. We’re discussing how to create a digitally skilled workforce, including assessing the skills gaps you may not even realize you have in your company. Sean will talk about the new realities and challenges organizations face as far as hiring talent, and how to better develop the talent you already have.
