Every industry is affected by digital transformation. The disruption of skills, creation of high-tech jobs that never existed, and widening skills gaps shape the success of a country’s competitiveness. Israel is no exception: talent shortages have been on the rise since 2012. The most critical need: to solve the software development talent shortage in high growth industries like biotech and telecom, according to the Minister of Economy and Industry. Committed to reversing the trend and reducing the shortage, the Israeli government turned to Experis, ManpowerGroup’s IT professional resourcing and project solutions brand, for help — and together we built an upskilling program as innovative as the tech jobs it trains for.
