Solving the Skills Gap: A Visual Guide on Upskilling

Upskilling is a buzz-word heard across every industry. 

Markets are shifting, bringing in new technologies and changing job opportunities, both of which change job requirements. New skills are required to fulfill those jobs. This results in businesses looking to bring their workers up to speed without any downtime. And that’s where upskilling comes in. 

The manufacturing sector has seen sudden rises in job loss and lack of recruits over the past few years. It has also seen a rise in Industry 4.0 technology. Between these two, the skills gap is more prevalent than ever before. Therefore, upskilling has become a prevalent solution. 

This infographic is designed to explain the current role of upskilling in manufacturing. Pulling data from surveys, this provides a glimpse into the perceptions of the skills gap throughout the entire factory.  

 

Upskilling is a training process that teaches workers new skills to improve their current roles. It is a proven method for reducing the skills gap across all levels of an organization. Upskilling solves numerous production issues and is championed by leaders and workers alike. One of the best ways to upskill workers is to utilize Augmented Reality (AR) training.
