The contemporary workplace is undergoing a swift transformation propelled by the escalating demand for tech and AI skills across a spectrum of job roles. This pivotal shift has brought forth Skills-First Transformation (SFT) as a fundamental organizational imperative.
iMocha recently hosted a gathering of industry experts to explore the concept of a 'Skills-First' approach and its potential advantages in navigating the evolving landscape of workforce management amidst ongoing technological and market disruptions. The webinar, titled "People Go Beyond Job Titles: Leveraging 'Skills-First' to Unlock Employee Potential," offered insights into talent management and how to address the challenges posed by changes and talent shortages.
Before September 2021, the term and idea of "GenAI" were relatively unknown to the general public. However, since then, 'GenAI' has emerged as a powerful force, causing significant disruptions in various fields.
As the times change and the world is continually exposed to new technological advancements, conventional tech skills are also evolving and transforming into "power" skills.
With our increasing dependency on digitization, tech skills have become crucial for all organizations, regardless of their industry. As more and more organizations are automating their workflow to meet the demands of the ongoing technological disruptions, tech skills are also evolving at an unprecedented rate and introducing new skills and job portfolios into the mix. At iMocha, we partnered with EY to understand this ongoing paradigm shift and answer three critical questions: What would be the in-demand tech skills across domains in 2025 and beyond? What would be the strategic and functional impacts of tech skills transformation? How are organizations responding to tech skills transformation? In our survey, we interviewed 50 HR and business leaders and conducted secondary research on over 26 million profiles to discover that 76% of these professionals & organizations have witnessed an increase in the demand for ‘application developers’ in recent years, while 62% of them have witnessed a similar surge for “business application power users” and “power developers.” But with a limited talent pool and shortage of required talent across the Indian, US, and European markets, how are organizations aiming to meet the increasing demand for application development and business power development skills? The answer can be organizational readiness through skills intelligence! In this blog, we’ll explain how building a skill taxonomy can help you overcome talent shortages and skill gaps and acquire future-proof application development and business application skills for your organization.
