New Delhi, Nov 6 (IANS) Indian professionals who invested in upskilling in the last three to five years witnessed a 2.5x increase in appraisals and 2.3x more frequent promotions, a new report said on Monday.

According to edtech platform upGrad, employees who upskilled in the past 3-5 years reported 1.7x more job security than those who did not.

“Upskilling, unlike yesteryears, has now become a clear driver of growth in our industry and this report is the reflection of what India’s corporate ecosystem collectively, continues to achieve,” said Mayank Kumar, co-founder and MD, upGrad.

“The genesis of the report stems from the evolving learning patterns emerging out of metros and non-metros, signifying a wider adoption among senior professionals and parents who are realising that lifelong learning is the key to long-term success,” he added.

The report surveyed over 3,500 white-collared professionals in India, focusing on the key trends in appraisals, promotions, and market opportunities, especially after a career break.

According to the report, women who were upskilled found it easier to return to work after a break and experienced 4.8x improved career stability.

Two out of three upskilled professionals were found to be parents signifying, a higher upskilling rate among working parents.

About 48 per cent of individuals self-sponsored their upskilling journeys, with their primary focus being on technical skills (61 per cent), online courses (55 per cent), and professional certifications (35 per cent), the report found.
