Catch up on our recent webinars based on our Beyond Skills Report. The skills gap and digital divide continue to impact the news agenda in the UK and abroad. The fact that change is not happening at pace, despite years of debate, shows that businesses still don’t fully grasp the necessity of taking urgent action. The past year has raised the pressure and decreased our collective timetable. If action is not taken soon, the whole economic recovery could be at risk.
At Avado, we feel the current conversation around skills is missing something fundamental about the working landscape. Most industries are more complex than ever before and the Beyond Skills campaign highlights the widening skills gap, showing it has become something much more serious: a capability chasm. Through third party research in the UK and APAC, Beyond Skills demonstrates a link between investment in capabilities and business profit.
Beyond Skills: Why the time to tackle the capability gap is now
In this webinar, we were joined by Keynote speaker and author Nigel Jeremy, CEO of New Economics Foundation, Miatta Fahnbulleh and Avado's very own CEO, Mark Creighton. We discussed the pressing need for businesses to build their business capabilities, the effect this has on the business and their people's mental health and how L&D needs to be at the top of the CEO's agenda.
