The Roothub launches community platform. “Today, the commitment to developing the digital skills of our society is more important than ever. For the development of information and communication technologies and other sectors contributing to tomorrow’s modern society to remain assured, a sufficient presence of skilled labour must be guaranteed,” emphasizes Tony Onuk, Co-Founder/CEO. “I am happy about the solutions proposed by The Roothub through the new “wearetheroothub.com” platform, which not only meets the need for access to information on training in the digital sector, but also allows businesses to participate actively, and even pro-actively in harnessing talents.
In the future, the Platform will also offer smart functionalities such as a self-assessment tool or personalized user experience. As a result, the Platform will play a strategic role in addressing the growing digital skills gap across different business sectors and society groups, such as the shortage of ICT specialists and the need for upskilling/reskilling of Africans in digital technologies.
