Skills gaps. We need more and better skills for the digital economy. Cyber. Cloud. FinTech. Manufacturing. Healthcare. Millions of jobs require these and other skills. Importantly, interpersonal skills, being able to collaborate with and lead people in the workplace, are needed everywhere.
Solutions to the challenges of today’s interconnected world require better training of interpersonal skills, e.g. working across cultures, communicating digitally, and leading 21st century teams. We also need better programs that bridge the skills and training gaps between employers and people who work for them, including more Apprenticeships and other work/study programs.
