To reduce the skills gap, companies will have to either train and prepare their employees, or they will need to persuade their employees to learn the required skills on their own.
As per World Economic Forum’s ‘Future of Jobs Report, 2018:
This puts the onus upon the employees to continually hone their skills and capabilities. They will have to proactively learn new digital tools and technical skills to prepare themselves to adapt to digital advances. If they don’t so this, they may find themselves becoming irrelevant in organizational environments.
Learning cannot happen without the yearning or the curiosity to know; and a curious person is constantly willing to learn and improve.
Curiosity is thus indicative of an individual’s ability to learn.
Curiosity quotient (CQ) of employees, which gives them the ability to learn, has become one of the most important soft skills required to stay relevant in organizational environments.
Easytalent uses the five dimensional curiosity scale (5DC) to assess the individual's CQ and from that derive their ability to learn.
The Ability to Learn Test consists of a battery of statements, and the individual determines how closely each of them describes him/her.
EasyTalent Ability to Learn Test uses its algorithms to analyze the five curiosity dimensions to determine the individual’s Ability to Learn score.
Digital transformation may attempt to change the way work was being done by introducing powerful digital solutions – but nothing will change on ground unless the workforce changes with it.
