With the unprecedented economic developments and the dramatic changes rattling through many industries, companies and employees need to make sure they are ready to embrace the disruptions and fend off potential skills gaps and talent shortages. In the modern workplace, digital skills are highly valued; in the future, digital skills will be vital. The digital age is expanding into all areas of our lives, and it is not just those who work in IT that will need to be alert of this change. However, it is not simply the development of old jobs that make digital skills so important in the modern workplace, but the creation of entirely new jobs. There is a genuine fear of a digital skills gap created by the boom in the digital economy versus the amount of people who are trained to work in it. While automation and robots seem to present a bleak future for human employment, companies need to realize that it will be humans who will be guiding the robots to do the work, and hence it not the question of jobs, but skilled jobs. So, are you ready?
