How Public Sector HR Leaders Can Use Skills Adjacencies To Address Skills Gaps

ON-DEMAND
| 1 hour

Increasing digitalization triggered rapidly shifting skills requirements and increased competition for roles that are critical to success in the digital business environment. These evolving needs and ongoing business disruption make it increasingly difficult for HR leaders to quickly find and develop talent with the most in-demand skills. Since 2017, the total number of skills required for a single job increased by 10% year over year, and the COVID-19 pandemic accelerated this trend, as 58% of the workforce needed new skills to do their jobs. Recent Gartner TalentNeuron research identifies a different approach to building skills that relies less on formal training and more on the use of “skills accelerators,” One type of skills accelerator is “skills adjacencies,” which enable HR leaders to help employees build and apply skills faster to address skills gaps across the public sector. This complimentary webinar uses Gartner TalentNeuron data to show where these skills adjacencies are occurring for the most in-demand skills and how public sector organizations can use this data to help address their evolving skills needs.
