PALO ALTO, Calif. — May 7, 2020 — With the global skills gap expecting to cost $8.5 trillion dollars, job seekers face the need to become more marketable with an influx of workers projected after COVID passes and one global firm wants to add clarity to individuals wondering their next move.
Liderança Group, a business and workforce acceleration firm witnessed first-hand the need for workers to demonstrate adaptability and created a first-of-its-kind program for individuals seeking to develop and showcase their skills in I.T., one of the highest-growing sectors of the job market.
With the world of work rapidly changing, World Economic Forum recently found, “More than half (54%) of all employees will require significant reskilling [by 2022]… as 133 million new roles are generated as a result of the new division of labor between humans, machines, and algorithms.”
“For many of us working from home due to COVID-19 pandemic, this is a unique opportunity to up-level and sharpen our technical skills as we get ready to enter the New World of Work when this is all behind us,” explained Frank Tawil, Chief Technology Officer at Liderança Group. “Afterall, People Drive Tech was designed to work around busy schedules, but now with most of us sheltered-in-place, it is the ideal time to actually sign up and learn networking, programming or any new skills you have been wanting to develop.”
With remote work on the rise, employers are actively seeking candidates who are, “remote-ready” to face other challenges ahead. According to Human Resources Today, “Global trends show that remote work has increased 159%” and employers are sourcing candidates that are not only more resilient, but more technologically-savvy.
Right now, job seekers can become a part of the future of work by augmenting their knowledge and skills with a proven set of lessons and learning tools in technology and IT, with a dashboard of over 3,000 course titles and online modules at People Drive Tech, located at http://www.peopledrivetech.com.

“Our People Drive Tech program was personally curated to ensure that candidates are prepared for the digital transformation companies are leading,” shared Cathy Light, CEO of Liderança Group. “The World Economic Forum believes the human race is on the verge of a technological revolution and we’re committed to equipping job seekers with skillsets for the future.”
Each module provides an abundance of training resources to help individuals prepare for certification exams and acquire new technical skills; all through a model of continual learning. With a focus on up-leveling candidate skillsets, Liderança Group is ensuring the next century brings parity between the genders and better-equipped jobseekers than ever before.
From a Human Resources perspective, companies are turning to their employees to drive their own growth, to take control of their learning—all in an effort to stay ahead. The Learning Experience Platform, or LXP, has risen rapidly as the technology of choice to facilitate key education and drive innovation.
