With the advent of the current COVID 19 crises, there has been a sudden shift in working culture, across the organizations. The workforce is pressed to remote work and ensure business continuity. While the increase in working from home is presenting challenges, there are out many organizations, who started leveraging the benefits of digital much before the lockdown, by training and encouraging their employees to hands-on remote working tools, and other digital technologies
It is an accepted fact that a successful transformation requires a shift in culture, across the organization. However, a holistic approach believed to work today is spanning the transformation across the process and notably people as well. To master perpetual digital change, people and organizations both must consider learning and development as a never-ending cycle of continuous improvement.
This is where Skill Development in Digital among the workforce stakes a key share while fighting with any unprecedented challenges to ensure a lower risk of business failure. While digital literacy, by definition, covers a wide range of elements, all of which are necessary to succeed in an increasingly digital world, primary skill development might be an immediate need of the hour to focus on the instant requirements of an organization. As various mediums including the paperwork begin to die out, the ability to understand business data, realize, recognize information, and further compute digitally, becomes more and more important.
Changing the way people think, act, and react is a key priority to successful digital transformation, thereby ensuring business as usual even during the worst-hit like COVID 19. This might feel like a big hurdle to any organization traversing a digital transformation, especially challenging the cultural aspect of the business, but scaling a certain amount of digital literacy within an organisation can be a starting curve to enhancing the entire workforce.
For example, it’s likely that an executive might be knowledgeable and have a certain level of literacy with respect to routine workflow already; however, structured and dedicated work from home learning through technology can prepare individuals to act as ambassadors of an organization’s literacy program.
