New world. New skills.

Everyone should be able to live, learn, work and participate in the digital world.

The COVID-19 pandemic has accelerated changes in how and where we work. For many organisations the crisis brought to the fore the discrepancy between the skills people have and those needed for jobs in the digital world.

Upskilling to bridge the digital divide is a complex problem that requires business leaders, governments and educators to work together. This will be instrumental to the future success of the Isle of Man to develop programmes to upskill and reskill the workforce to invest in our people, our island and our economy. In the process, we’ll make the world a more resilient, more capable and more inclusive place.

Here at PwC Isle of Man we have started our upskilling journey and over the next few years will be making a major investment in terms of upskilling. This will primarily be invested in building the ‘digital fitness’ of our people, and in technologies for supporting clients and programmes to support our community.

Together, we’ll help upskill the Isle of Man. We’re excited to continue our journey to upskill our own people and share what we’ve learned and help businesses, governments, local communities and individuals accelerate their upskilling journey.
