There is a disconnect between the needs of employers and the skills we teach in Higher Education. Employers are recognizing that they can change their outlook by removing unnecessary degree requirements and playing a more active role in hiring and training. But that’s just a starting point. Employers have the opportunity to rethink how the next generation of workers are trained and hired, and how they will need to work with Higher Education institutions to bring that to reality.
