The world is changing more and more – and not just every year. Every month, every week, every day, there are new innovations, breakthroughs, and ideas that redefine industries and communities. Unfortunately, there are some rainy days for businesses, and while keeping up with an unpredictable landscape isn’t always easy, there are ways companies can traverse it successfully.

The workplace has evolved in the past few years more than it has in decades. Some employees only need a laptop or a tablet on a day-to-day basis, and for those working from home, commuting is a thing of the past. The tools to get the job done are always changing, too. We’re still learning new things about Google Sheets and QuickBooks. How do we catch up? Many businesses are realizing that old dogs can learn new tricks: experts are calling this reskilling and upskilling.

Reskilling and upskilling is new to many businesses, but it is proven to work. Corporate giants like Amazon and Mastercard have successfully implemented reskilling programs prior to 2020 which maximized the potential of their staff without the expense or uncertainty of hiring new employees. Career training is never finished. There’s always something new to learn.

Grimsley has been happily training working professionals for 25 years and counting.
