How L&D Leaders are Shaping Data Literate Workforces


Earlier this year, the World Economic Forum released a report on upskilling for shared prosperity. It was a call to action stating that closing the skills gap could add up between 5 to 6.5 trillion US dollars to global GDP by 2030. Now more than ever, organizations of all types are looking at learning and development as a significant lever for growth.
