Upskilling for Shared Prosperity

In Collaboration with PwC

Upskilling for Shared Prosperity is a call to action. It makes the economic case for providing employees with learning and development opportunities to expand their horizons while minimizing skills gaps. The report highlights certain challenges, such as addressing the disconnect between current education programmes and the skills employers need today and in the future, but also presents upskilling’s advantages, including wider social benefits triggered by the development of specific skills that will prove beneficial for the future success of the global economy. It offers recommendations for businesses and policy-makers, and shares examples of successful collaborations that can be replicated and expanded.
