With the rise of the Skills economy we are witnessing a shift in hiring, training and how work gets done. While technical skills have been tracked and managed for many years, human skills are harder to quantify. But they are becoming increasingly important in a world of dispersed workforces and permacrises, and all the human challenges that are associated with these seismic shifts. And that’s before we mention the rise of AI!
