Why is upskilling so important?

“… if we were to withstand pressure from competitive markets and leverage from it, we cannot afford to have any form of skill-mismatch, skill-gap, and skill-shortage, or even lag behind the supply of high-skilled talent. Upskilling and reskilling efforts have to progress faster than the rate at which jobs are being replaced. ”

Datuk Seri Rahman Dahlan (Minister in the Prime Minister’s department) – Keynote at the Future of Work, Workplace, Workforce Conference – 20 Nov 2017

 

In addition, the Khazanah Research Institute recently published a report, stating that 54 per cent of all jobs in Malaysia could be at high risk of being displaced by technological disruptions in the next two decades. In terms of skill level, over 70 per cent of all semi-skilled and 80 per cent of all low-skilled jobs across all major economic sectors are at high risk.

The Malaysian workforce as a whole, and in particular young graduates, lack vital skills to ensure (continuous) employability. School and tertiary education currently only inadequately addresses the skills gap between what educational institutions teach and what industry requires. Based on a recent McKinsey & Co report, only 42% of employers stated that their employees hired over the past year had been adequately prepared for work by their education.
