A big change in 2022
While the pandemic brought with it many challenges, it also offered the country the opportunity to reinforce its position as a preferred destination for manufacturing. Organisations are focusing on readjusting their strategies to meet the requirements of this changed landscape. This will create more jobs and the need for skilled manpower in the long run. Post pandemic, we will be required to target leaner business models. This means, organisations will be required to put more efforts into upskilling and reskilling of the existing workforce on the basis of the new skills that are required to successfully execute these new models.
Multiskilling complemented by soft skills such as innovative mindset, learnability, and creative/ critical thinking will now be in more demand. The 2022 workplace will witness more infusion of technology into the learning methodology. Placing the control in the hands of the learner and providing equal opportunities to grow in many possible fields will hold the key.
