The survey also included assessment of the government-subsidized upskilling programs if they have been used by member companies.
The results showed that additional training is necessary in the following skill areas: leadership, digital, project management, English and Russian language and data. The results of the survey are available HERE
On April 27, AmCham sent a letter to stakeholders calling to revise the existing programs and courses available for upskilling and retraining based on the real demand in the labor market at present and following the crisis.
AmCham proposed to identify various solutions and technologies already available for use free of charge that can contribute to the skills needed and to introduce a new model of how skills are acquired - relevant for a digital society and economy.
Proposals to improve the quality and content of upskilling and retraining programs are based on four stages: foundational skills, critical soft skills, technical skills and continued learning. To view them in ENG and LV.
AmCham reflects our values and enables us to meet similarly-minded people.
