A contribution of Bruce Fecheyr-Lippens, Founder of Huapii
Many of us are confronted with the so-called “war for talent” and research stating that around 50% of the workforce needs to be reskilled or upskilled in the coming years. When I hear it again and again, I feel an inner tension and I finally realise why. It is - to me at least - a quite paternalistic and top down statement. It assumes higher forces are seeing people as pieces of the puzzle in a bigger ‘game’. I do agree, the discussion around the “skills debate” is a very pertinent one.
