PwC Singapore will provide more than 80,000 hours of ‘’digital fitness’’ training on visualisation, data analytics and automation for staff. This is part of a $10 million investment over the next two years to develop the digital skills of more than 3,500 employees.

PwC also wants to grow its base of employees with advanced digital skills to help teams utilise insights, automate processes, develop solutions and improve user experiences it says.

Globally, PwC is committing US$3 billion over the next four years to upskill its 276,000-strong workforce across its network. The money will be used to train employees and fund the development and sharing of technologies.

Business is booming for PwC in Asia, with revenue rising 9.3% to S$8.44 billion, for the year ended June 30, 2019.

Digital upskilling is becoming more and more urgent for organisations to narrow the gap between the current skills of the workforce and those needed for the digital world.
