Employers anticipate that 44% of workers' skills will be disrupted in the next five years

Companies estimate that six in 10 workers will require training before 2027, with a particular focus on analytical thinking, creative thinking, AI and big data, leadership and social influence, resilience, flexibility and agility, and curiosity and lifelong learning
