Your Checklist For Upskilling and Retraining Employees

Filipino workers are now more willing to learn new skills. Download JobStreet’s checklist to leverage on this and future-proof your workforce.

Workplaces across the Philippines have changed, with technology allowing us to cope and survive in the “new normal” that we live in today. 

However, modernization will continue, and it could put some roles or functions in danger of being obsolete later on. Reskilling and upskilling could be keys to being prepared for the future workplace. 

Where to begin? In this article, we share a checklist with everything you need to know to upskill your employees. 

Why upskill? 

Filipinos across all age groups and education levels expressed their willingness to retrain and upskill, according to the Decoding Global Talent Report by Jobstreet, Boston Consulting Group, and The Network. In the telecommunications industry, for instance, 78% of workers shared that they are willing to retrain for a different job role. The respondents in this industry are the most concerned about their jobs being at risk because of automation.

This willingness to retrain goes across all industries though, and most of the respondents said that they are motivated by the desire to stay competitive.

With the motivation already present, your company's role is to nurture and cultivate it. Read on to see how you can build an environment and infrastructure that embraces this:

Change is inevitable, and it arrives faster because of unexpected challenges like the global pandemic. Creating a culture for learning is one way to ensure that your company stays competitive no matter what challenges the future might bring, since it helps keep employees motivated to constantly improve. It can also be a foundation you can build on that new talents could find attractive.
