Tomorrow's skills matter today

Taking a long-term approach to skills and emerging trends

Long-term skills planning is crucial in a post-Brexit/pandemic landscape where skills shortages and a challenging labour market pressure employers.

Developing skills is a long-term investment, and building talent pipelines can both grow resilience within your organisations and mitigate against labour market shocks. Understanding existing capabilities within your teams will help you identify emerging gaps - not just over the next year, but along the timeframe of your upcoming business plans, dealing with issues such as decarbonisation, broader environmental pressures, advances in technology, and improving customer service levels.
