Bridging the skills gap: Fuelling careers and the economy in India

Bridging the skills gap: fuelling careers and the economy in India

Economist Impact, supported by Google, conducted a survey of 1,375 employees across Asia-Pacific (APAC), including 100 employees from India, between November 2022 and January 2023. It also interviewed employers and industry experts across the region to understand their perspectives on skills gaps, as well as reskilling and upskilling aspirations.

The survey respondents were drawn from across 14 markets in the region, out of which 11.8% were Gen Z (born in 1997-2012), 63.2% were Millennials (1981-96) and 25% were Gen X (1965-80). They all worked in a diverse mix of industries.1

Bridging the skills gap: fuelling careers and the economy in Asia-Pacific

The nature of jobs and skills requirements are changing rapidly across the Asia-Pacific region (APAC). The fast pace of transformation is forcing business leaders to quickly identify looming skills gaps and prepare their workforces for the future, giving clear direction to employees on how to build the skills they will need to thrive. Getting ahead of these skills gaps will require investment, leadership, and clear communication about the effects of trends like digitisation and automation on future skills needs.

The Great Resignation in Asia-Pacific

A trend that saw millions of people resign their jobs in the United States and then Europe in 2021, is now a matter of concern across the Asia-Pacific too. Talent shortages have been reported in Indonesia, Malaysia, the Philippines and Thailand among others, with companies struggling to retain and attract talent.

Into the New World: The Covid-19 Pandemic’s Impact on Innovation

The Covid-19 pandemic is the most significant global disruption since World War II and the first truly global public health crisis in the modern era. Entire industries have ground to a halt; international travel has receded to its lowest level in 75 years; nearly all of the world’s leading economies are in recession; and at the time of publication, more than one million people have died from the virus and its complications. As the pandemic forces profound change in all aspects of society, technology is playing a starring role in enabling organisations to respond to disruption.

The data-driven enterprise: New strategies for better decision-making

The volume, variety and usability of data have expanded at an unprecedented rate over the past decade. At the same time, the ability to quickly generate decisions based on data alone, sometimes through automation, is increasing. Industries have been made and remade thanks to a rigorous emphasis on acquiring and exploiting data—or a failure to do so.

직무역량 격차 해소: 한국 경제 성장 견인을 위한 인재 양성의 동력

아태 지역 14개 시장을 중심으로 진행된 이번 설문조사의 응답자 중 11.8%는 Z세대(1997~2012년생), 63.2%는 밀레니얼 세대(1981~1996년생)이며, 25%는 X세대(1965~1980년생)인 것으로 나타났다. 응답자가 종사하는 산업 분야는 다양했다1.

연구에 따르면 아태 지역 전반에 걸쳐 미래에 필요한 직무역량과 이러한 역량을 개발하기 위한 최선의 방법에 관해 기업과 근로자 간 시각 차가 있는 것으로 나타났다. 또한 일부 문항을 보면 기업이 원하는 직무역량과 근로자가 갖고 있는 직무역량이 서로 불일치하는 모습도 드러났다. 미래 경제에 대비된 인적 자원을 배출하기 위해서는 이러한 격차에 대한 이해가 전제되어야 한다.
