Companies are failing to train and upskill employees in the face of technological disruption, warns the Workforce Institute at Kronos.
Research by its European chapter reveals that almost one in three workers (30%) has received no training in the past year. At a time of growing automation in the workplace, 39% feel technologically challenged; and 24% think most of their colleagues lack sufficient skills to complete the tasks they perform.
Seven out of 10 employees (70%) say they would be more productive if their technology and technological skills could be improved. One in five workers expects the amount of skilled workers in their organisation to decrease as a result of Brexit.
