BUILDING A FUTURE-READY FEDERAL WORKFORCE
According to research by the World Economic Forum, 75% of organizations plan to adopt new technologies (AI, Big Data, Cloud, etc.) over the next five years, while 44% of workers’ core skills will experience disruption. As federal agencies invest to ensure their workforce remains ready for the future and poised for innovation, how can they ensure they have the talent to maximize those investments?
It requires a skills transformation across a combination of three crucial areas: Technology, Leadership, and Risk.
Skillsoft is proud to partner with the US Federal Government to identify and rapidly fill skill gaps while offering visibility to track progress across your agency.
Benchmark skills and measure proficiency and skills gained across the entire agency.
Transform skills across Technology, Leadership, and Risk, offering a mix of modes — but without the cost and complexity of managing multiple providers.
Quickly identify gaps between the workforce you have and the workforce you need. Rapidly deploy skill pathways personalized for each learner with a trusted and experienced partner.
