Skill debt is plaguing the future of work. According to PEW research, 39.2% of Americans work in major service-industry sectors. While it may seem daunting, knowing that the majority of our workforce needs to re-skill or upskill in order to stay relevant, there are proven methods to set them up for success in ‘future workplace’ careers, which we’ve seen shift more than ever in the past year.

As more processes become automated, skill debt increases and so does the opportunity to train the workforce for new opportunities. While on average, companies invest over $20 billion on education initiatives, the emphasis of these programs doesn’t lend to long term success for employees or businesses.

Today, we’re going to chat with Chris Olson, Strategic Advisor at Class on 4 strategies for reskilling and upskilling the workforce for the hybrid future.

  • Be intentional about development programs.
  • Future proof your workforce from the bottom up.
  • Build a culture around talent mobility.
  • Train technical and “soft” skills needed for today and the future.
