A recent report has highlighted a concerning statistic: 90% of Indonesia's workforce has never undergone certified training, with only 8% of Indonesian companies providing training opportunities for their employees. This issue raises questions about Indonesia's preparedness to compete globally with other nations in various fields.

With such a pressing issue at hand, there is an urgent need for companies to prioritize upskilling and provide certified training opportunities in globally recognized skills. However, due to time constraints, lack of knowledge, and the high cost of courses, business owners may still hesitate to pursue this avenue. Given these challenges, it is crucial to find reliable ways, such as certifications and training platforms, that offer affordable and flexible courses for various fields in the job market.

Recognizing this problem, Ben Chew, the founder of Talentvis – a globally renowned recruitment agency based in Singapore, Malaysia, Indonesia, Thailand, and Vietnam – decided to seek a solution. He created Talentvis Academy, a training platform for employers offering tailored training programs to empower individuals with the skills needed to advance in Southeast Asian countries. With a membership of 77,000 globally, offering 20+ curated courses and over 100 top-notch programs, Talentvis Academy aims to enhance career development and skill enrichment for employees worldwide, bridging the gap between aspirations and achievements.

This initiative by Talentvis highlights the importance of addressing the skills gap in Indonesia and providing accessible avenues for upskilling. By investing in the workforce's development, companies not only empower their employees but also contribute to the country's competitiveness on the global stage. It's time to prioritize training and certification to ensure Indonesia's workforce is equipped for success in the rapidly evolving job market.
