Hiring managers and employees are not seeing eye-to-eye on the skills that future workplaces will demand.
While 85% of employees are confident they have the skills to perform well in the future, only 52% of hiring managers agree to this. That means 1 in 2 employers doubt their team has the right skills mix for the future.
The great divide: Just what skills will we need for the future?
Employers and employees are also at odds on just what will be the key skills needed in tomorrow’s workplaces, with employers more concerned with wanting their people more agile, innovative and able to think critically, while their people are more focused on playing catch up – coping with change and managing stakeholders tops their list of the key skills they want in the years ahead.
