The economic repercussions of COVID-19 have indeed triggered a strong wave of digital transformation across the business world — all in an uncomfortably short period. In 2020, amid the pandemic, online learning emerged as a critical tool that promises the potential to prepare businesses and professionals for a digital future.
While skilling has become a hot trend in the current job climate, professionals should know that simply having basic digital skills won’t cut it because disruptive digital skills are now necessary, not a preference. Job roles like data analysts, data scientists, process automation specialists, and digital transformation specialists are expected to gain more prominence in the next few years.
Going forward, technology will play a key role in what we do in all domains at work, including recruiting, learning & upskilling, and virtual networking & events. With this surging demand for digital processes and talent across businesses and the workforce, online learning is poised for massive growth in the year to come. The online education market is expected to touch INR 360 billion by 2024, up from INR 39 billion, according to a recent report by data firm ‘Research and Markets.’
Ergo, the biggest takeaway for professionals ahead of 2021, is to set important skilling milestones in their journeys. Moreover, given the rapid pace of tech adoption, professionals can welcome the new world of work with ease by expanding their tech skill sets and remote work acumen.
