Why are Data and Digital Skills Needed the Most in the Public Sector for 2022? 

Digital skill development in the public sector has been the talk of the town for many months now. With many studies highlighting the figures that suggest more needs to be done to prepare the sector for a rapidly changing move to online, cloud-based systems.  

In order for the sector to continually innovate and effectively work in a digital technology and hybrid environment, a greater focus needs to be on reskilling employees to enhance their digital proficiency and improve productivity. 

This may be a slow process, as the UK Government has the challenge of reinventing a much older IT infrastructure, but when it comes to reskilling employees, we are here to help the digital transformation of the sector.
