Upskilling in the Financial sector

The response to the digital revolution

About the webcast

The digital revolution is impacting both private and professional lives and is challenging governments, corporations and individuals to adapt. Almost every job in the marketplace is affected and is not just transforming the workers’ profiles but also the organisations themselves.

Skills gaps and mismatches are one of the most pressing problems companies face, as indicated in our recent CEO Survey * with 74% of the CEOs concerned with the availability of digital skills in their workforce.

These challenges have now been amplified by fast unplanned changes and the lack of remote work capabilities due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Upskilling has become more than ever the indispensable response to the ongoing technological and economic transformation.

In this webinar, we’ll talk about the key implications of the digital workforce transformation for companies in the financial services sector, and the need to develop and execute an integrated workforce transformation and upskilling/reskilling vision. We’ll also share with you best practices and recent industry use cases from our work with companies and FS government authorities.
