Is Your Workforce Ready for 2020?
6/13, 11

Work looks completely different today than it did just a generation ago. Where we work looks different, how we work has changed, and the skills any given employee needs are evolving faster than we can keep up. Employers especially need workers skilled in software development, marketing and sales management, engineering, web development, and financial management, but those jobs are taking longer and longer to fill. On top of those open jobs, employers will need to fill roles by 2020 in emerging fields like robotics, data science, automation, and content curation.
