Skills gap closing 

What is skills gap closing?

Skills gap closing is the process of acquiring necessary skills for work tasks.

Why do some organizations struggle with closing skills gaps?

Many companies cannot see a reduction in skill gaps or experience a wider mismatch between their talent and the needed skills. One core reason is that most companies don’t have a clear understanding of the skills their workers already have compared with the skills they’ll need to help the organization succeed in the future. Organizations struggle with closing skills gaps even as they keep investing in new learning programs and employees sign up for them.
