Many of today's human resources (HR) professionals do not feel that current workforces undergo enough preparation in order to ensure they can meet company needs.
People Management company Softscape revealed the findings after their Global Talent Management survey discovered that some 94 per cent of HR staff felt employees were not sufficiently prepared, reports Onrec.
Concerns of this kind have increased by around 30 per cent since 2006, according the survey.
Commenting on the findings, Christopher Faust, executive vice president of global strategy at Softscape, said: "Ongoing business transformation is prompting organisations to look for ways to rapidly evolve their workforces to achieve new levels of productivity and effectiveness, and the connection between effectiveness and shareholder value has clearly reached the executive suite."
The study was conducted across small, mid-sized and large companies and involved some 250 HR professionals.
Softscape is a provider of advanced technology and global services.
