Large workforce transitions have been accelerated by the COVID-19 crisis and reskilling and upskilling play a key role in closing talent gaps and helping employees feel connected to the workplace.  While digital and technical skills remain in high demand, more than 45% of CHROs say that skills in complex problem solving, teamwork, business understanding, and leadership have increased most in value but are shortest in supply. HR plays a vital role in ensuring that talent strategies emphasize the kind of digital, cognitive, social, emotional, and resilient capabilities that will strengthen the employee experience, accelerate leadership development, and help companies thrive in an age of disruption.
