Survive and Thrive: How L&D Must Pave the Way for Company Success with Soft Skills – US

Is your skills gap hindering your organization’s potential for success?

Although companies are investing substantially in skills development, Gartner research has indicated that 80% of employees are still missing skills for current and future jobs. What’s missing in the equation? Whether due to a lack of understanding of what essential skills are required, or a lack of focus on key L&D enablers, it is now critical for CLO’s and their L&D departments to adapt and drive the up-skilling of the workforce for a competitive advantage.
