Addressing the Critical Need for Skills Training and Digital Certification

Over 172 million people globally were unemployed in 2018. The International Labor Organization expects the global unemployment rate of 5% to remain unchanged over the next few years.

Global unemployment has reached the lowest level in a decade. There is a rise in the mismatch between an individual’s job-related skills and the demands on the job.

This whitepaper discusses how unemployment can be reduced by relevant skills training and verifiable digital certification.
