To say that corporate reskilling efforts are important would be an understatement. Billion-dollar retraining programs and on-site corporate colleges have become a reality.

As we cover in our HR Trends 2020 report, there have been many advances in learning technology. Learning content is more plentiful, cheap, and accessible with the rise of massive open online courses.
