By 2018, digital jobs and businesses will grow by 500%. 67% of the current jobs will be overtaken by robots within 30 years. Undeniably, digital technologies are impacting the workplace, whether in the way we collaborate, use big data, or innovate. Digitalization has also had an impact on daily working habits, since work can now be done anywhere, anytime and on any device. One of the objectives of CrossKnowledge is to prepare businesses for a digital transformation and boost their digital culture, to reinforce the competitive advantage.
Highly disruptive times
The digital transformation means that organizations nowadays are confronted with highly disruptive times. Also, the generation of millennials, who have now joined the workforce, feels comfortable with most of the tools the digital age has to offer while other generations have different expectations and attitudes regarding technology. As a result, the 21st-century employee is expected to collaborate remotely, share information easily and boost organizational productivity. But the workforce is not equipped: 50% of employees think their company is behind in joining the digital transformation, and 82% of CEOs feel their staff is too slow to embrace this change.
Digital literacy: The ultimate package
Mastering digital skills does not necessarily mean digital literacy. For example, simply understanding how to use software designed for virtual meetings does not guarantee high performance during the virtual meeting. To reach high impact results, organizations also need to understand how to plan and organize an online meeting and master communication and delegation skills in a remote setting.
Therefore, digital literacy requires an integrated focus on technical, functional and behavioral skills. Since the 21st century requires mastery of these complimentary skillsets, CrossKnowledge creates customizable and turnkey solutions to target those skills that your organization needs to retain competitive advantage in the digital age. We can help you succeed in boosting your digital culture and lead your organization to embrace the digital transformation.
