Bridging Skill Gaps with Phenom and Udemy Business
Skills have not only become the building blocks for employee development and mobility — they’re essential to future-proofing your organization in the face of talent shortages. Upskilling, reskilling, and redeploying talent decrease the need to hire net new employees with specialized skills, while also engaging employees who otherwise might churn.
Fortunately, modern learning management systems (LMS) and learning experience platforms (LXP) are helping employees bridge skill gaps, offering tens of thousands of learning opportunities and courses to develop skills.
But here’s the challenge: With so many options available, the burden of discovering the right course that provides the right skills at exactly the right time often falls on the employee. It’s difficult to know where to begin.

Preparing for the Unknown Future
The shrinking labor force has impacted almost every organization’s ability to serve customers, maintain their staff, and plan for the future of their business. But as HR teams strive to adapt, the economy continues to grow more unstable — adding more uncertainty to an already uncertain future.
Understanding and fortifying the skills of your enterprise and individual employees is a solid strategy for future-proofing your team. You can start by connecting the right people with learning opportunities to bridge skill gaps faster and build a more capable team now, and in the years to come.
