Business leaders looking for competitive advantages in every facet of their business — from operations to sales to recruiting – cite employees' data skills as a top need. But when it comes to providing data-training opportunities for employees, many are falling short.
Recently, Tableau commissioned Forrester Consulting to explore organisational issues and challenges in data literacy and cultures. Unsurprisingly, Singapore has one of the highest data literacy expectations globally.
The majority (91%) of employers surveyed expect basic data literacy from employees in every department — including product, IT, HR and operations. However, only 28% of businesses carry out data training for all their employees.
