“Smooth seas do not make skillful sailors.”
Often attributed to Franklin Delano Roosevelt, this old African proverb helps us realize that some days can be tough on our journey. It is helpful to remember that rough seas help us learn how to manage, how to cope. And it is not just life skills we are talking about; it is an organizational dynamic.
Learning has often been billed as a competitive advantage, being able to adapt and adjust faster is how businesses think of employee learning and development (with the notable exception of those who are just focused on maintaining compliance). The thought process goes, “by developing and training our employees, well have the most skilled workers, which will translate into productivity, retention, and ultimately success in our marketspace.” All of which are true, but the year 2020 taught the world of work some additional, hard lessons about the value of investing in learning: the key to adaptability and survival of every business starts and ends with learning. Remote work, virtual collaboration, and new skills training became the lifeboat that saw us to shore. To our surprise, we found that not only could we survive this way, but we could also thrive.
We may not be able to predict the next crisis, competitor, or marketplace change, but you can prepare your workforce to be adaptable and your business to be ready to take on any challenge.

Anche nel 2020 l’Italia si è classificata piuttosto male per quanto riguarda il differenziale di genere: è 76esima nella classifica complessiva e 117esima per la partecipazione femminile alla vita economica stilata dal World Economic Forum (Global Gender Gap Report 2020). Una delle ragioni è la bassa percentuale (meno del 50%) donne nella forza lavoro. Le donne in Italia si trovano spesso, ancora oggi, a dover scegliere tra famiglia e lavoro o, per lo meno, tra famiglia e carriera.
