About this Webinar

A 2019 Gartner research report revealed that “talent shortage” is the top emerging challenge facing organizations. Another recent McKinsey Global Survey stated that nine out of ten executives and managers say their organizations either face skill gaps already or expect gaps to develop within the next five years. Rapid growth in emerging technologies is changing the skills that the workforce needs to thrive in a highly competitive landscape. But do we have enough supply of skilled talent to meet the demand?
