The skills gap grew by 12% last year, according to a survey of 600 HR leaders by Wiley Education Services and Future Workplace. Nearly two-thirds of HR leaders reported a skills gap in their organizations, up from 52% in 2018.  Forty percent of respondents said the cause of the skills gap is changes in technology and needed skills.
