Upskilling initiatives could close the technology skills gaps uncovered by remote work

HelpNet Security -

Technology challenges introduced by the COVID-19 pandemic and the emerging trend of remote work uncovered technology skills gaps at many organizations, which in turn required new approaches to upskilling efforts, a Pluralsight report reveals.

The report compiles survey results from more than 600 technology learners and leaders in the United States and Europe on the most current trends and attitudes around skill development.

“Closing the technology skills gap continues to be one of the biggest challenges facing enterprises. As organizations around the world responded to the pandemic by accelerating digital transformation initiatives, accelerating the move of applications to cloud platforms, and supporting remote employees, the need for effective and scalable upskilling tools became even more important.

“It’s clear that organizations that close the skills gap better position themselves to retain top employees and win in these new and unpredictable times,” said Gary Eimerman, GM of Pluralsight Skills.
