According to research by the Degreed skills platform, the global health and economic crisis is having three major impacts on the state of skills:
- It accelerates the need for new skills.
- It reduces opportunities for upskilling and reskilling.
- It is making the workforce more stressed and vulnerable.
Currently, according to this survey, technological skills rank at the top across countries, followed by skills in leadership and management, and communication and negotiation techniques.
Take advantage of the opportunity to train individually and specifically to become a CMA® (Certified Management Accountant) during the crisis.
For nearly 50 years, the CMA® certificatin for Professionals has been the global benchmark for management accountants and financial professionals. Why? Because CMAs can explain the “why” behind numbers, not just the “what.” And that can give you greater credibility, higher earning potential, and ultimately a seat at the leadership table. And that is what you need to be a business partner for the management.
