Mind the Gap – Digital Talents are scarce. Win the war of talents by accessing, growing and retaining the best talents within your ecosystem – before your competitor does.

Due to technological change, the way of working is changing. New skillsets are needed to fulfill the new requirements. This challenges organizations in different ways:

  • Shortage of talents – 54% of companies believe that their shortage of talents is hampering their digital transformation causing a loss of competitive advantage.
  • Lacking development – 59% of employers say their organization lacks employees with soft digital skills and more than half of the employees don’t believe in company’s trainings program.
  • High attrition – 55% of digital talents are willing to move if they feel their personal development stagnating.

As our studies on the digital talent gap show1, companies acknowledge a widening digital talent gap – and it keeps on growing.
