Evolving Mindsets and Skill Sets: Digital Upskilling at Work

Companies are digitizing many aspects of their business to adapt to the changing business environment. Similarly, to thrive and advance in the digital age, employees must acquire new skills in order to effectively leverage technology in their day-to-day work. Leaders are investing in tech, yet are those efforts aligned with workforce expectations? Is more training the answer or are traditional approaches insufficient to meet employee upskilling needs? What do employees really want, and are they willing to make the time to engage in digital upskilling opportunities? PwC recently surveyed 12,000 people who shared their views about the digital tools they use in their daily work, why certain approaches to digital upskilling efforts are valued more than others, and what strategic steps CHROs can take to close skill gaps and increase digital capabilities.
