Ang, vice president for talent and learning solutions in Asia Pacific at LinkedIn,
shared: “As digitalization continues to transform the workforce at a rapid
speed, certain skills are becoming less in-demand simply because different
skill sets are required to navigate such transformation. It is therefore
important for organizations to have a deep understanding of their current
talent pool, and how to evolve it for their long-term business goals. Helping
current talent to upskill or reskill early can help organizations ensure that
their future talent needs are met.”
we encourage organizations to tap on real-time data and insights to help inform
them about trends in the talent marketplace, we also believe that embracing a
culture of learning is just as important for organizations to remain resilient
amidst a rapidly changing workforce,” said Ang.
