6 Key Elements to

Rapid Upskilling

Lessons from BlueOptima’s Levels of Zen Upskilling Programme

20th July 2021 2-3pm

There has never been a greater need for organisations to upskill and develop their people

A recent Chartered Management Institute (CMI) report quotes research that by 2030, 7 million additional workers could be under-skilled for their job requirements. That equates to 20% of the workforce. The pandemic has accelerated the already significant impact of technology, automation and AI on business.
