This IDC Survey presentation includes data from IDC's November 2018 Future of Work Survey. It provides results and analysis from a survey of 400 respondents who are decision makers and/or influencers in their organization's work transformation initiatives. Respondents are from a broad range of industries and company sizes in the United States. The goal of the survey was to understand the specific initiatives and technologies deployed as well as personas, challenges, benefits, and impact. This Survey presentation specifically looks at reskilling initiatives.
"To fully leverage the opportunity of automation, augmentation, and human-machine collaboration, organizations must have the relevant and required human skill sets," says Holly Muscolino, research vice president, Content and Process Strategies and the Future of Work. "In some cases, these skill sets may be developed in current employees via training, development, and reskilling programs."
