New Horizons Jacksonville Presents ATLAS Career Assessment
Both workers and employers are discovering that as we are becoming more digitized, many jobs are becoming obsolete, and new jobs often require skills we may not have. A report from McKinsey found that as many as 375 million workers worldwide may need to switch occupations because of digitization and automation.
What is the Skills Gap?
The 'skills gap' is the difference between the skills that employers need and those available in the available job pool. With more businesses realizing that investing in technology can help them become more profitable and competitive, they discover that their employees lack the skills they need to help them compete. A report from ManpowerGroup found that talent shortages in the U.S. have more than tripled over the last ten years. As a result, employers find it increasingly difficult to find workers who have the training they are looking for to step into these roles.
Are Your Skills Aligned with Demand?
New Horizons now offers a free intuitive holistic career assessment tool, Adaptive Technology Learning Assessment System, or ATLAS, designed to help get people back to work. ATLAS is a unique solution that simultaneously solves three problems for the global workforce:
- Businesses need to upskill/reskill to meet their urgent need for skilled workers.
- Upskill workers with the training they need to further their careers
- Provides new workers the training they need to jump into the job market
ATLAS is an innovative solution that uses predictive intelligence that prepares workers for the new digitized workforce while helping HR teams upskill/reskill their existing talent pool.
How Does ATLAS Work?
