Solutions aligned to your talent development efforts 

Effective learning and development programs are mission critical. According to the World Economic Forum’s 2020 The Future of Jobs report states that 50% of employees will need new skills by 2025, partially due to automation*. 

While tech innovation can help improve efficiency, build new business models and create a competitive advantage, it can also be costly and ineffective.** Your training team needs tailored learning pathways to address long-term skills growth and quick adaption to changing business needs. University of Phoenix Workforce Solutions Group (WSG) will work with you to create options to address these needs.

Frequently asked questions

To ensure students learn the skills employers like you want, University of Phoenix collaborated with Lightcast, a labor market data company to identify in-demand skills. Then we aligned our curriculum to these skills to help students learn them one course at a time.

Your Human Resources department and training managers can identify the employee skills needed for your organization and select the individual courses, degrees and learning pathways to target them. Or we can work with you to build the specific learning pathways to support your employee development efforts. 

Learning and development can play a strategic business role. Initiatives designed to create skills-based organizations, internal talent marketplaces and, an upskilling culture and skills-focused job promotion can help you address challenges with talent development, upskilling and reskilling, recruitment and retention.  

It’s typically more efficient and cheaper to build talent internally than to buy it externally through recruitment and hiring. As the Harvard Business Review recommends, “Treat skilling as a business investment, not an expense.”

*Goel, Puckett,; 6 Strategies to Upskill Your Workforce; Harvard Business Review, 4/25/2022; online:

Some skills and knowledge gaps may appear obvious. But when you take into consideration all organizational priorities and market conditions, you may get a more comprehensive picture. 

The University of Phoenix Workforce Solutions Group brings you a portfolio of tools and services that can help your organization identify current deficiencies and project future skills gaps. Our learning and development resources can empower your Human Resources training team to customize specific ways to address them.

In addition to ensuring the capabilities exist to help the company succeed, workers view career development and upskilling opportunities as a benefit. This can help support talent recruitment and retention efforts. 

According to the 2023 Gallup study**, The American Upskilling Study: Empowering Workers for the Jobs of Tomorrow, “65% of workers believe employer-provided upskilling is very important when evaluating a potential new job.”
