Upskilling: New skills for a new business environment

Before Covid-19, internal strategic conversations were largely focused on the need for employers to improve efforts in attracting talent. However, with many businesses opting a freeze in recruitment during the pandemic, retaining key talent has become a critical priority for businesses and their HR teams. We focus on how TMT organisations can strengthen the skills of their workforce and ensure their productivity remains relevant as businesses continue to adapt and change in these extraordinary times.
