FMN - 2019/April, Seg.4 - The Skills Gap: A Role for Your Enterprise and for You

Course Overview
Today’s economy is characterized by fast-changing technological needs, resulting in a significant skills gap between those abilities that are required on the job, and the actual competencies that are possessed by the current (and future) workforce. Dr. Andrew Temte, CEO of Kaplan Professional, highlights the ways that enterprises can collaborate in “up-skilling” their existing workforce to meet future demands, as well as the need for individuals to provide mentorship for those who will be entering the workforce.
