In response to the coronavirus pandemic, organizations across the world and their employees are adapting to remote work and developing the necessary capabilities to perform in this new environment. Digital skills are the foundation for a successful digital adoption and transformation, especially given the current climate.
Though COVID-19 has certainly shined a spotlight on the need for digital skilling, the reality is this demand existed long before the pandemic began. According to a Forbes article published in 2019, “93% of companies consider innovative technologies as necessary to reaching their digital transformation goals”. The same article stated that “71% of leaders say the workforce is important in supporting their digital transformation strategy.”
Businesses will need a cutting edge tool set and resources to maximize the use of technology long after the pandemic is over, as over half of respondents in a survey from Forbes said they would like remote work to continue to be their main way of working.
