Conventional approaches for closing skills gaps are failing to keep pace with revolutions in work and technology. In this research partnership between the Cornerstone People Research Lab and HCI, we investigate nascent new-skilling efforts and patterns of collaboration for skills discovery and the development and delivery of learning programs.
We’ve found that organizations in which elements of a new-skilling approach are emerging tend to outperform their peers on a range of talent and business outcomes. These high-performing organizations are doing something different - gradually shaping their L&D programs in ways that address both current and future needs. Our report recommends six action items for building a new-skilling approach that adapts to the changing needs of your organization and your people.
