3 Reasons Why You Must Leverage on Data to Plan Your Company’s Talent and Skills

COVID-19 forced many enterprises to quickly adapt to the new business operating environment and re-think their strategy for workforce planning.

According to the World Economic Forum,, enterprises were affected by the rapid acceleration of 3 major forces - deglobalisation, digitalisation and corporate consolidation. This resulted in a unique situation of high unemployment and evolving skill needs. Enterprises are experiencing a pressing situation of skills gap and skills shortage.

HR Guru John Bersin too reminded us that, HR is going through unprecedented speed of change, which signals the inevitable need for enterprises to take action.

A data-driven approach could be used to support and plan for a future ready workforce, and design a targeted HR strategy, whether in the form of talent development, manpower redeployment, upskilling or re-skilling. Watch SSG’s Feb 2021 Jobs-Skills Webinar for available tools and usage.
