[Excerpt] One of the largest problems facing companies today is the shortage of available and qualified talent. This skills gap is largely going unaddressed with 60% of executives reporting that they cannot keep their workforce current on necessary skills. In the future, this problem is likely to intensify as millions of workers are forced to reskill or change jobs or industries due to technical innovation.
