Make Digital Literacy a Strategic Workforce Priority

  • United States Image

Apr 13, 2018

On April 13, 2018, the National Association of Corporate Directors (NACD) posted a blog by Leslie Chacko on how board members must turn their attention to digital literacy and preparing a company’s workforce to face new challenges.

If there is one word that is capturing the new normal pace of the age we are in, it is acceleration. One critical challenge that can’t be ignored is the company’s role in preparing its workforce for intelligent automation.

Two things are certain: one, in the near-term, we expect much workforce force disruption; and two, as artificial intelligence algorithms increase in sophistication and computational power, the pace of intelligent automation is likely to accelerate and push the workforce to focus on higher value activities. To meet that challenge, the workforce of the future will need to acquire a new set of skills rapidly in order to interact with the future of intelligent systems.
