Upskilling the Workforce – New Opportunities for People and Organizations

The Fourth Industrial Revolution (4IR) holds huge potential for organizations of all sizes to grow their businesses through improved productivity. However, to fully reap the potential benefits, employees and managers will need re-training and upskilling to take on new processes and technology.

4IR is changing many companies’ entire revenue model and this requires new processes and a new way of thinking in the workforce, particularly focusing on multi-disciplinary teams focused on delivering the best service possible. Organizations need to think about technical skill gaps, but also about gaps in business culture, behaviors and management skills. Organizations and people also need to have a continuous learning approach to keep pace with changes.
