About this conversation:

The 2020 Future of Jobs report published by the World Economic Forum sheds light on some of the most important trends and pressing challenges faced by enterprises. One of the themes that clearly stands out throughout the report is how “Digital and Automation” are paving the way for the future of work. Yet, the biggest barrier faced by enterprises when it comes to digital adoption or transformation is “lack of skilled talent”. With demand for digital talent outpacing supply, the only and the most cost-effective way for enterprises to succeed is by upskilling and reskilling their employees and setting them as well as their organization’s for success in a tech-driven world that’s ahead.
