McKinsey & Company projects that 87% of companies anticipate worsening skill gaps by 2026 in both hard and soft skills. Emeritus Academies are designed as a comprehensive solution for mid-to-large organizations navigating these challenges – including tracks in Data, Software and Cloud Engineering, Sustainability, Leadership, and more – as nearly every company today undergoes strategic transformation. Each Emeritus Academy is designed to help organizations build the skills needed to launch and execute transformations at all levels of the workforce with distinct needs for each audience: from leadership who will envision and drive organizational change; to practitioners who will use innovative technologies to improve business performance and reach; to all employees, who will need to become digitally fluent and adopt a digital mindset. Success depends not just on organizations implementing new technologies but also on their ability to take advantage of the opportunities these technologies provide.
