The Digital Talent Gap—Are Companies Doing Enough?

The challenge of the digital talent gap is no longer just an HR issue; it is an organization-wide phenomenon that affects all areas of the business.

We undertook a worldwide, cross-sector research program in collaboration with LinkedIn to analyze the demand and supply of digital talent. We surveyed over 1,200 people to gain the perspectives of both employees and leadership teams and we interviewed human resource and talent executives within organizations as well as digital and technology recruiters. In parallel, we worked with LinkedIn to understand demand and supply for specific digital skills and digital roles.
