Envisage a crisis that forces your company’s employees to change the way they work almost
Although initial fears that the pressure would be too great, you find out that this new way of working
could be a blueprint for the longer term.
That’s what leaders of many companies around the globe are finding as they respond to the pandemic.
Even before the current pandemic, changing technologies and new ways of working were disrupting
jobs and the skills employees need to do them.
In 2017, the McKinsey Global Institute estimated that as many as 375 million workers—or 14% of the
global workforce—would have to switch occupations or acquire new skills by 2030 because of
automation and artificial intelligence.
In a recent McKinsey Global Survey, 87% of executives said they were experiencing skill gaps in the
workforce or expected them within a few years. But less than half of respondents had a clear sense of
how to address the problem.
The coronavirus pandemic has made this question more pressing!
Workers across industries must figure out how they can adapt to rapidly changing conditions, and
companies have to learn how to match those workers to new roles and activities.
This dynamic is about more than remote working—or the role of automation and AI. It’s about how
leaders can reskill and upskill the workforce to deliver new business models in the post-pandemic era.
To meet this challenge, companies should craft a talent strategy that develops employees’ critical
digital and cognitive capabilities, their social and emotional skills, and their adaptability and resilience.
Now is the time for companies to double down on their learning budgets and commit to reskilling.
Developing this muscle will also strengthen companies for future disruptions.


• Identify the skills gaps that organisations are facing
• Analyse how the situation can evolve and forecast for that eventuality
• Appreciate the different scenarios that could present and how these can impact an economy

Target audience

 Accountants, Auditors, Entrepreneurs, Practitioners,
Professionals seeking to enhance their Continuous Professional Development
