BHER report discusses state of upskilling, reskilling in Canada: Study


The Business + Higher Education Roundtable and Business Council of Canada recently published a report on worker upskilling and reskilling in Canada which is based on the findings of their Skills Working Group and the results of BHER’s 2022 Skills Survey. The report authors discuss common upskilling partners, the common attributes of these activities, and the challenges and barriers faced by these initiatives. In the recommendations, the authors encourage postsecondary institutions to more deeply engage with industry partners. “Industry partners aren’t always sure who to talk to or when and may have a perception that PSIs aren’t well-suited for agile, responsive programming,” note the authors. “PSIs must recognize and proactively communicate the resources, services, and value they provide to support upskilling and reskilling efforts.”
