LIFELONG LEARNING, DEMOGRAPHIC SHIFT & DIGITALISATION
IT is overtaking every facet of the modern world. Employees have to get used to the fact that their profession and workplace of tomorrow will have little to do with the present day. Lifelong learning, the expansion of professional and interpersonal skills is equally important for employees and companies alike. In addition, there is an ongoing generational shift and employees have a longer working life. These factors favor companies that see experience as an asset and an opportunity. Companies that are betting on the return of long-term investment in their employees, companies that are planning for the future, companies that are gaining, developing, motivating and inspiring their employees.
