Only 16% of new hires possess the skills needed for their current jobs and the jobs of the future!

Skills are becoming obsolete at a fast rate, something the pandemic has only intensified, Existing roles may require up to 10 new skills by 2021, according to a recent analysis by Gartner. This follows a BCG report that noted “skill mismatches between what employers need and workers have are ‘imposing a 6% annual tax on the global economy in the form of lost labor productivity.'” And to top that off …  57% of those recently unemployed are unable to identify their transferable skills (LiveCareer).

Grow Your Talent, Develop Leaders

You don’t need better employees! You need better training to retain the top talent you have and attract the top-tier talent you want. A recent Linkedin Workplace Learning report showed that a stunning 94% of employees want to work at a company that helps them learn new skills. Training employees is not only the right thing to do but the ROI is huge. Research shows that online microlearning helps create a great working environment and company culture at a fraction of the price of more traditional training programs.

Join me (Ira S Wolfe) when Scott McKenzie, a learning industry expert and Director of Channel at ej4, when we talk about the growing importance of online learning in 2021, why microlearning is better, and the #1 reason every company – large and small – should be training employees. Each participant will be an opportunity test drive our business and software skill libraries of 2600 micro-learning courses for 15-days after the event.

This Event is Free, But There’s Only Room for 100!
