Virtual Reality to Skill, Upskill and Reskill the Workforce of Future
Critical thinking and problem-solving are the top two skills that have been identified as a necessity to navigate the workplace of the future. According to a recent report by the World Economic Forum, self-management skills such as active learning, resilience, stress tolerance, and flexibility are among the emerging skills that are the most sought after, post-pandemic. To address these emerging needs employers have had to shift their goalposts when it came to hiring. This has resulted in a massive skill gap across various industry sectors. And, if we bring in remote work to the mix, the situation becomes even more complicated.
