Everyone should be able to live, learn, work and participate in the digital world
Our jobs are changing, and fast. Many roles are disappearing altogether, while new ones are springing up. The discrepancy between the skills people have and those needed for jobs in the digital world is one of the most critical problems of our time. The need to upskill is a complex problem that will require decision-makers — educators, national, regional and local government administrators and business leaders — to come together. Over the next four years, we at PwC are committing US$3bn to upskilling. This will primarily be invested in training our people, and in technologies for supporting clients and communities. Together we can grow tomorrow’s workers today. In the process, we’ll make the world a more resilient, more capable and more inclusive place.

The skills gap is a challenge that goes to the heart of our purpose, to build trust in society and solve important problems. At PwC, we prioritise the upgrade of all our people’s skills and we cooperate with organisations and institutions in order to approach people, who under different conditions would not have had access to such opportunities.
