I know they’ve been out for a bit, but the last two Avenger movies are some pretty good quarantine viewing. Epic bad guys fighting well-loved good guys as they pull on your heart-strings—it’s some good stuff. Technology has improved so much; just take a look at Guardians of the Galaxy from a few years ago as opposed to the rich computer rendering that transformed actor Josh Brolin into the eight-foot ultimate genocidal environmentalist, Thanos.
If you’ve seen the movies, use your imagination to picture a world without 54% of its workforce. Just like in the Avengers: Infinity War—poof, half the workforce just disappears in smoking clouds of dust and ashes. That’s the future, except instead of a mad Titan with a fancy glove snapping his fingers, it’s the pace of technological evolution that is rapidly changing the landscape of our world. Gone—or at least, outdated.
According to Randstad, upskilling is “the process of teaching employees’ new skills that will aid them in their work.” Technology is driving this need, given it a sense of urgency, because our world is changing so fast if we’re not evolving our resources to deal with it, we’ll be left behind. Rather than constant turnover as we try to bring in people with skillsets in demand, upskilling lets us retain and re-train proven resources to meet new demands.
This has probably never been truer than during the COVID-19 crisis ravaging the world, as unemployed or under-employed individuals search for new opportunities and companies scramble to get the most production out of their workforces.
According to Business Insider and the World Economic Forum, “By 2022, 54% of all employees will require significant upskilling due to automation and AI.” That’s a lot of people! Business Insider was quick to point out how a number of big companies are planning to meet this need by upskilling current and future employees. They’re doing what they can to turn those floating dust motes of lost employees into the next generation of highly trained technological avengers.
Your digital transformation is likely driven by some of the same factors as this need for upskilling—changing demands and increased need for efficiency and cutting-edge technological benefits. They’re the same forces outdating your existing workforce. So, how will you retrain these valuable resources? How will you keep them all on the same page as technology pushes for even more changes? How will you keep these new avengers of your’s on-target and working efficiently as they, and your company, transform from outdated to the superheroes of tomorrow? You might need a helping hand navigating this new, changing world, and that’s where Platinum PMO and AMIGO come in.
