The coronavirus pandemic has become the hot topic of the board room discussions where business leaders are trying to figure out the ways to handle the current and post-COVID-19 scenarios. Companies are reimagining several new roles that can help them stabilize their business operations and facilitate business continuity.
New emerging skills like Complex Procurement Roles, Financial Planning & Analysis (FP&A) roles, Cybersecurity roles, Animation roles are in huge demand in this crisis. Supporting the strategic aims of the enterprise, proper planning, budgeting, forecasting, protecting confidential organizational data, etc. are key activities of these roles for effective organizational development.
However, a sudden spike in the demand for such roles made HR leaders to rethink their talent development strategies. One such strategy they follow is creating a reskilling journey of their in-house talent and make them prepared for the post-COVID-19 world.
Now, HR leaders are listing out the current roles and the roles-in-demand for an organization to map a reskilling journey with micro/macro learning modules. Based on each specific course module completed within a timeframe, one can acquire new-age skills and tools to become proficient and handle tasks of the transitioned role.
