We see a shift in the skills required for an evolving world of work and people are ready to embrace this.

DMCG Global recently ran a poll to find out what people’s career resolutions were as they headed into 2023. What was on the top of their priority list for the year ahead?

The overall results showed that 48% of people polled felt that up-skilling was their biggest priority in 2023.

This is a strong indication that employees understand the need to ready themselves for an ever-evolving job market. Knowing that re-skilling and up-skilling is one of the most effective ways to remain ahead of the curve. Especially as new technologies such as AI, blockchain, and cryptocurrency are becoming more commonplace in the workplace, having an impact on the way a business operates.

As both an employer and an employee it is important to understand where the need lies, and the skills required to meet this.
