Why is learning in the workplace so important?
With technology advancement, shifting customer preferences, and tougher global competition, it is more crucial than ever for companies to become learning organizations. In these organizations, employees continually create, acquire, and transfer knowledge— helping their company adapt to the changes faster than their rivals.
“50% of all workers will need reskilling by 2025, and those remaining in their current roles will need to update 40% of their core skill set to adapt to the changing labour market”. World Economic Forum, Future of Jobs Report, 2020
Reskilling offers powerful benefits over hiring for skills:
1. Controlling salary costs – on average, external hires are paid about 20 percent more than reskilled workers.
2. Getting employees up to speed in a new role takes less time
3. Boosting morale by investment in career development of employees.
4. Tapping into a new pool of diverse talent.
