59% of Brits want to retrain in new line of work

The coronavirus pandemic has highlighted just how essential soft skills are to the agility of companies. Many companies, especially those having to operate with a reduced workforce as staff remain furloughed, will have relied on the ability of staff to take an ‘all hands’ approach to ensuring that work continues.

In addition to this, many thousands of Brits have unfortunately lost their jobs as a result of the economic fallout from COVID, forcing many to find new work in a challenging period. As a result, new research from CV-Library has discovered that a staggering 59% of Brits have said that they would be willing to reskill and retrain in a new line of work.
