India is a land of paradoxes and skilling is no different.
Ours is a country of young minds. Half the population is under the age of 25 and two-thirds are less than 35. By 2027, the country will have the world’s largest workforce, with 1 billion people aged between 15 and 64 years.
While this demographic dividend promises immense opportunities, it brings its own set of challenges. This is a unique scenario — millions unemployed on the one hand, and rapidly evolving and growing skills needs on the other. There is an opportunity for the former to solve the latter’s problem.
Most major organizations recognized the need to reskill employees long before the pandemic. In 2019, the ILO Global Commission on the Future of Work stated, “Today’s skills will not match the jobs of tomorrow, and newly acquired skills may quickly become obsolete.”
50 % of employees will need reskilling by 2025, reported WEF in a recent report on Future of Jobs 2020.
