By the end of 2022, 60% of the world’s GDP will be digitized, but the US is currently lagging far behind. With SkillsTX and the SFIA framework, this could soon change.
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Sheridan, Wyoming, October 6, 2022— The US has been left in the wake as the world’s key economies forge ahead into the digital age. Currently placed 29th out of 100 countries for digital skills, there is much work to be done.
Digitally speaking, while the US has made significant strides in the tech industry, it has also taken backward steps in other, more traditional industries. When organizations lag behind, they fail to attract the best talent and cannot deliver a cutting-edge product. By failing to keep up with the digital landscape, businesses lose out to their competitors in other countries.
Australia recognized the same problem with its workforce and took swift action. Its Government made the Skills Framework for the Information Age (SFIA) free to all its organizations and citizens. SFIA works by allowing organizations to identify and address the digital skills gaps they possess.
Once Australian organizations started filling the digital skills gaps, the country leaped forward and is now ranked 20th in the world for digital skills. Even today, it is still one of the fastest-growing digital talent countries.
It’s clear. The US must get on top of its digital talent and skills strategy to be a forerunner in the digital age.
