Top analysts spotlight how ProEdge provides learning experiences aligned with business goals

When PwC asked CEOs about their top priorities, a skilled, educated and adaptable workforce topped their list. Workers with the tech chops to wrangle data, automate tedious processes and run a team using agile methodologies are in high demand. And while equipping people with those skills will be good for business, it’s also good for individual careers. 

Despite the need for upskilling, there’s still a wide gap between the demands of the digital economy and the skills workers currently have. There’s an urgency to close these gaps from within an organization and use skill-building opportunities as a perk for attracting job seekers in today’s search for top talent. A stellar upskilling program may be the new 401(k). 

Helping you develop those upskilling programs is where we come in.

What does effective upskilling look like?

PwC collaborated with IDC researchers who specialize in corporate learning and human resources to bring you  valuable digital upskilling insights based on our own digital transformation journey. It was this journey that inspired the creation of ProEdge—a platform we built to help others roll out customizable learning enterprise-wide. 

According to IDC’s specialists, effective upskilling should involve, “a skills-based approach us[ing] algorithms to enable a personalized, relevant experience for leaders, administrators, and learners.” It should also include, “mapping that enables robust, individualized learning pathways that empower employees to learn the skills that can elevate an organization’s digital acumen.” Additionally, upskilling programs should provide access to function-specific courseware and, “opportunities to increase their skills and earn credentials.” 

PwC’s ProEdge meets these criteria and more.
