Summary by Dirk Langeveld

The COVID-19 pandemic has resulted in major shifts in how companies do work, from different scheduling options to the adoption of new technology. Businesses will also need to develop new strategies for improving their workers’ skills.

Closing skills gaps has become a more crucial issue for companies as competition for talent has become fiercer. Nacho De Marco, CEO of the tech solutions company BairesDev, offered tips on building and maintaining a skilled workforce in a recent article for Forbes.

De Marco says companies can identify their most important needs, how workers can address them, and any weaknesses within the company on particular skills. They can then focus on whether to upskill employees be adding to their existing skills or reskill them to train workers for tasks different from the ones they currently complete. De Marco says companies can also look to external partners such as other businesses, nonprofits, and government resources to assist this process.
