Addressing the employability crisis 

May 13 2014
Across the world there is a crisis in employability. 

Despite widespread unemployment, many employers are struggling to recruit people with the skills they need to grow their business and enable the economy to recover. 

As business becomes more complex, there is increasing demand for the most talented individuals. However, far too many people are being left behind without the skills they need to gain a rewarding and sustainable career. 

In addition, the sheer pace of technological developments, forces of globalisation and changing demographics mean the skill sets people and business require change constantly. Both people and organisations need to continually adapt to survive. 

The solution? Employers, educators, students, employees and government must commit to working together to ensure the workforce has the skills business really needs, today and for the future. 

This report sets out how stakeholders must work together in resolving the employability crisis, and shows how we have worked with stakeholders around the world to ensure CGMA designation holders have the knowledge, skills and competencies employers need.

Nothing beats on-the-job training.  In my 40 year career, I was fortunate to be employed by companies that valued that training.  Over the past 20 years, the overly flat organization and pigeon holing of employees has largely done away with that training.  That has left a void of middle managers and well rounded employees ready to move up the ladder to fill the jobs that are needed.  We need to invest in our young employees today, and resources like the CGMA can help that.
