Radical Reskilling: Maximizing Hybrid Team Success for the Future of Work
This IDC Perspective discusses how and why a robust reskilling program amps up organizational success. Especially relevant to today's post-COVID-19 pandemic hybrid and remote workplace, reskilling programs help organizations meet their strategic business goals by ensuring that employees across teams, geographies, and time zones have the technological, business, and human skills they need to get the job done. Reskilling fits easily into IDC's Future of Work Framework and its three pillars of culture, space, and augmentation.
"Amid a worsening skills shortage, organizations must focus on aligning strategic business goals with the career goals and plans of their workers," says Gina Smith, Ph.D., research director for IDC's IT Skills for Digital Business practice. "A robust reskilling initiative boosts organizational competitiveness and resilience while giving employees the clear career path and flexibility they crave."
