A recent survey conducted by Harvard Business Review shows that many managers are underestimating their employees’ ability to adapt to today’s fast-changing business environment. While executives tend to worry about recruiting new employees who possess the skills of tomorrow, existing employees see opportunities to learn new competencies and get more meaningful work tasks. Many employees, however, believe that they lack information and education from their managers who are to prepare them for these disruptive changes. Although there is a shortage of expertise in several areas today, for example connected to technology such as artificial intelligence in supply chain, managers should not only rely on external recruitment. Instead, internal training, as well as building a corporate culture that promotes constant learning, should be seen as a more long-term solution at a time when technological changes are both quick and continuous.
