Skillsoft report provides data and guidance for addressing skills gaps

Skillsoft, a global leader in corporate digital learning, has released its Lean Into Learning: 2021 Annual Learning Report, exploring the top challenges and opportunities facing today’s workforce, as well as trends in learning and the role it plays in transforming organizations and employees.

With businesses prioritizing building future-fit, resilient teams, the report highlights a 55% year-over-year increase in the number of learners on the Skillsoft Percipio platform and a 45% increase in total hours of Percipio learning consumption in 2021.  

Events of the past year have created numerous obstacles for organizations to navigate including the shift to remote and hybrid work, the rapid acceleration of Digital Transformation and a widening technical skills gap.

As companies seek to reinvent themselves, improve the overall health of their business, and motivate staff, they are placing an increased emphasis on employee development.

Jeffrey R. Tarr, Chief Executive Officer, Skillsoft, said: “The nature of work – and consequently the nature of the workforce – has evolved at a rapid pace. Digital Transformation, a global pandemic, and a changing workforce have caused companies to rethink how they conduct business and the talent required to innovate, meet customer needs and exceed employees’ expectations.”
