Future of Skills

Future of Skills

How many master's degrees does it take to get your foot in the door? In some industries, probably none. While there's no denying the value of a solid education, certain industries will require employees to regularly upskill in order to switch roles and pivot on the fly. We speak to consultants and business leaders about the fluid nature of the "new employee", how the pandemic has forced us to rethink skill sets, and how you can renew yourself with ease.
