In response to the authors of the current Forrester report, “Predictions 2023: Way forward for Work,” corporations will cut back expertise waste by recycling it and, in doing so, will bump inner expertise mobility to 25%. Expertise mobility will enhance at giant firms from 20% in 2020, because of the rising, albeit determined, adoption of abilities ontologies and expertise marketplaces within the face of a good expertise market. Unable to recruit for key roles externally, expertise acquisition groups will fill open jobs with present staff, forcing a broader dialog about workforce agility, automation and reskilling.
