Eighty-seven percent of companies worldwide have implemented or are in the process of implementing digital transformation.
There is an inevitable tipping point within most if not all industries between an old model and a new digitally transformed model. Once this change begins within a business organization you begin seeing the ripple effects in layoffs and discharges.
According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics release in Q2 2019, Professional and Business Services have a 25 percent annual layoff and discharge rate across all regions, 66 percent higher than the industry average. It has become clear that every career professional today needs to act proactively in order to survive, or even thrive, in the Digital Transformation Age.
