Future-Proofing Your Workforce: Tackling the Digital Skills Gap 


It is estimated that in Europe today 4 out of 10 adults and every third person who works in Europe do not have adequate digital skills. Organisations are undoubtedly trying to bridge this skills gap as digital transformation continues to grow but for this to have its greatest impact, we need more digitally minded people. With this in mind we will address the challenges posed by the ever-increasing digital skills gap and discuss strategies such as upskilling and reskilling employees, as well as tactics for attracting and retaining top digital talent. Our speakers will explore the rapid advancements in digital technology and the impact this has on the job market, education, and industries as a whole. Through interactive discussions and case studies, this session will equip both organisational leaders and the industry workforce with practical solutions to bridge the digital skills gap, and learn how and where to find digital training resources to build a more digitally focused workforce of the future.
