5 Tips for Upskilling and Reskilling
1. Identify what is relevant
Learning and development leaders expect there will be a shift in what are the most important areas of growth. Technical skills will be less important to develop, while soft skills—adaptability, leadership, teamwork, communication, etc.—will be prioritized.
2. Increase your training budget
When it comes to organizational success, having a well-trained and skilled workforce is key. And in order to have a well-trained and skilled workforce, you need to invest in your employees’ learning and development.
3. Focus on recruitment and reskilling
As the world of work continues to evolve, it’s becoming more and more important to focus on reskilling employees. Reskilling is the process of teaching employees new skills so that they can perform their current job in a different way.
4. Assess and advise individual employees
Some form of individual transformation will take place for participants, sometimes taking them out of their comfort zones.
5. Select training and providers.
The quality, value, and efficiency of the training experience affect every aspect of the upskilling initiative, from its costs to employee outlook and motivation.
