Survey: Skilling the Global Workforce of the Future & Gen AI

To better understand views on skills training, and AI at work, Visier did a global survey of over 3,000 employees from C-level to entry-level.

Skills might be one of the biggest challenges facing organizations today. One McKinsey survey found that 87% of organizations recognized that they had a looming skills gap problem within the next one to five years; a similar PwC study found that only 40% of organizations were actually investing in skills training with their current workforce. These contradictions are compounded by the findings in this employee survey which dives deeper into how employees are considering their career futures, skills development, and what priorities can—and should—be put in place when it comes to the adoption of generative AI in the workplace.

In order to better understand the current state of skills training, Visier conducted a global employee survey with over 3,000 respondents in the US, Canada, the UK, and Germany.
