Technological advances spur changes in companies—and jobs—of all kinds. The pace of change has become so rapid that it’s hard, if not impossible, for educational institutions to keep up. Even the most recent graduates often lack the specific skills that organizations need, so learning must also happen on the job.
HR leaders should stay abreast of these changes to ensure they’re developing internal talent and seeking external talent to fill technology gaps that may exist today while preparing for future needs. It’s a daunting task, with tech talent in increasingly short supply and new needs continually emerging.
