Reskilling in the age of AI

As the pace of technological change continues to increase, millions of workers may need to be not just upskilled but reskilled. Companies have a critical role to play in addressing this challenge. To learn more about what their role will entail, the authors outline five paradigm shifts that are emerging in reskilling: 1. Reskilling is a strategic imperative. 2. It is the responsibility of every leader and manager. 3. It is a change-management initiative. 4. Employees want to reskill - when it makes sense. 5. It takes a village. Companies will need to understand and embrace these shifts if they hope to succeed in adapting dynamically to the rapidly evolving new era of automation and AI.
