Re-learning the necessary skills for “Re-skilling” work… The gap between enthusiastic and ineffective companies lies in the “internal digital revolution”! : Watch Company J-CAST

“Reskilling,” where workers relearn skills and knowledge useful for their work, is becoming popular. It seems that the time has come when neither employees nor companies can survive without taking risks.

Under such circumstances, the Teikoku Data Bank announced on November 28, 2022, that there is a gap between companies that participate in risking and those that do not, in the “Special Project: Corporate Awareness Survey on Re-skilling”.

Interestingly, before venturing, there is a difference in the degree of relearning efforts depending on whether to promote a “digital revolution” within the company or not.

Some companies prioritize “relearning” managers before employees

Re-skilling means learning a skill again. That is, “relearning the skills needed to get a new job or to adapt to the drastic changes in skills needed in the current job.”

Recently, DX (digital transformation, digital revolution) is advancing rapidly, new occupations are being born, and the way work is done is changing dramatically. Re-skilling is not just about individual learning, but companies are required to take the lead in tackling it in order to survive.

For this reason, the government’s comprehensive economic measures approved by Cabinet in October 2019 stated, “In order to structurally raise wages and strengthen growth potential, the public and private sectors will work together to implement a support package for reskilling and investment in people. The policy was to invest 1 trillion yen.

According to a survey by Teikoku Databank, it was found that there is a correlation that companies working on DX are also working on reskilling. When companies were asked about their reskilling efforts, 48.1% of the total number of companies implemented at least one reskilling initiative, while 41.5% made no specific efforts (Chart 1).

Looking at the status of DX initiatives, the ratio of reskilling initiatives among companies working on DX reached 81.8%. On the other hand, among companies not working on DX, only 32.2% were working on reskilling[Siart 2].

“Learning new digital tools” and “Using e-learning and online learning services” were high. What is interesting here is that in companies that work on DX, there are many things that let employees learn new skills and relate them directly to their daily work, but in companies that do not working on DX, managers are more likely to learn new skills. skills than workers There is a lot of content to learn[eto, Siart 3].

First of all, before raising the level of all employees, it is necessary to start by re-educating the managers who are not motivated to promote DX.
