By 2022, 54 percent of all employees will require significant upskilling, according to the World Economic Forum. Many companies have already made a commitment to train current employees to help them develop skills to meet the changing demands of their jobs.

We’re at an inflection point — we need to act now, collectively, to tackle this major, global issue before we risk excluding great swathes of society from the workplace.
