skills gap

The skills gap is real—and growing. HR can help bridge the gap, deploying strategies and tools to prepare students and workers for today and tomorrow.

SHRM’s research finds that 8 out of 10 HR professionals report that high-demand and soft skills are in short supply. Employers need workers with the hard skills to perform jobs in technology, manufacturing, data analysis and other 21st century careers And they need workers with the soft skills to communicate well, empathize with co-workers and lead their teams.

These presentations delve into the why of our current skills shortage dilemma and the how of closing the gaps, including partnering with K-12 education, expanding training innovations like apprenticeships, tapping into underutilized talent pools and leveraging HR to play a key policy leadership role.
