How do organisations upskill?
Organisations are transforming their workforces to drive productivity, innovation and growth. Upskilling is key. It’s about anticipating the right skills for the future, laying the cultural foundation, delivering modern upskilling programmes, and building a learning and development function with the right EdTech to deliver a vastly better return on upskilling investment.

How is PwC reaching those at risk of being left behind?
With 71 million young people worldwide unemployed, and between 20-40% of the jobs currently held by 16-24 year olds at risk of automation by the mid-2030s, developing the skills required for the digital age is one of the most acute challenges communities are facing.
PwC and UNICEF are collaborating to help upskill millions of young people around the world. The collaboration supports Generation Unlimited, a multi sector partnership aimed at helping 1.8 billion young people transition from school to work by 2030. Learn more.
PwC’s collaboration with UNICEF is just one of the many ways PwC is helping communities upskill and builds on the network’s existing community impact programmes that have been focusing on this challenge for many years.
How can businesses, governments and institutions work together on this complex issue?
Solutions to the challenge of upskilling will need to be developed at the local, regional and national level, and no one organisation can do this alone. Government leaders and policymakers need to ensure that citizens have the knowledge to participate, and they themselves have the knowledge to drive discussion on the future of technology and regulation. Institutions, such as those that make up the education system, need to digitally transform themselves and at the same time provide services that are fit for the future.

The need to upskill is a complex problem that will require decision-makers — educators, national, regional and local government administrators and business leaders — to come together. If you would like to find out more about what we at PwC are doing, get in touch.
