I hear about the skills gap every day from clients. I experience it every day as a consumer of good and services. So, I know there is a skills gap – in every sector, every organization, and every company. But I decided to take a broader look. Google found over two million hits for a “skills gap” search. Interestingly, a significant portion declared there was no skills gap. I disagree, and I bet you do as well. If you’d like to resolve a skills gap in your organization, give us a call. We can help.
