Upskilling is the process of building upon employees’ existing skills and strengths to enhance their skill sets. In a rapidly changing business environment, upskilling and continuous development are championed as a way to remain competitive and adaptive in the job marketplace. While reskilling seeks to build employees’ skills in new functions and roles, upskilling initiatives continue to build the skills they acquired for current or previous roles to enhance their performance and capabilities.
