Today, companies are facing a slew of new challenges. Skill gaps have long been a burden for employers, making it difficult to secure the capabilities they need to accomplish their goals. There’s also a growing talent shortage, making it even more difficult for organizations to avoid staffing shortages and maintain full productivity. Additionally, many professionals have different expectations of employers now. Along with competitive compensation, a positive, supportive culture featuring a diverse workforce is increasingly viewed as essential. Along with skill gaps and talent shortages, many organizations are still adjusting to the workplace approaches created by the pandemic. Many companies rapidly embraced remote work in response to the pandemic, a strategy that wasn’t inherently part of their workplaces before COVID-19. As a result, leaders weren’t necessarily trained in managing a distributed team beforehand, leaving them feeling ill-equipped to guide remote employees and promote success. In order to promote growth and support productivity, companies need to update their leadership training to address the challenges of today. Otherwise, they’ll struggle to remain ahead of the competition both now and into the future.
