Today’s dynamic labor market is fueling an unprecedented sense of urgency among policymakers and executives alike. The shrinking shelf life of skills has been well documented.

Automation is transforming not just businesses and industries, but entire labor markets. Employers struggle to identify and hire, or develop, talent with the skills they need to compete. And as the labor market tightens, retention rates plummet and demand for skilled workers fuels costly churn.
