The skills gap grew by 12% last year, according to a survey of 600 HR leaders by Wiley Education Services and Future Workplace. Nearly two-thirds of HR leaders reported a skills gap in their organizations, up from 52% in 2018.  Forty percent of respondents said the cause of the skills gap is changes in technology and needed skills. Nearly a third of respondents attributed the gap to a lack of qualified candidates.  Ninety percent of respondents said they’d hire a job seeker who lacks a four-year college degree, though 68% said a degree is useful in validating certain skills.
