If you’re weighing up the benefits of upskilling, here are four great reasons you need to upskill and should constantly be working and wanting to improve your performance.

1. Increase your potential employment prospects

The benefits of upskilling early, will give you the best possible chance to acquire new job opportunities, promotions and in turn improve your employability. By having an extensive set of skills, rather than only a small handful, it’s likely that you will be recognised as more valuable to employers. This, making it possible for you to explore and pursue areas that may not have been possible before.

2. Make yourself future proof

In the workforce, there is one thing that is certain: uncertainty. Ironically, no position, company or industry is ever 100% predictable. If you take responsibility for your learning and upskill cleverly, you have the opportunity to accumulate a variety of skills in different areas, making you exponentially more attainable to an employer.

3. Experience something new & challenge yourself

Opening yourself up to new challenges and opportunities may just be the thing that ignites a new passion inside that you didn’t otherwise know existed. Thus, leading you to roles within the healthcare sector that might not have been thought of before.

4. Expand your network & meet like-minded people

In terms of employment, there is one phrase that is used time and time again: it’s not what you know; it’s who you know. And while in reality, it is definitely a combination of the two; upskilling is a practice that can help you with both.

A Hays survey of over 2,000 people found 77% of employers are more likely to shortlist a candidate who has regularly upskilled.

As a rule every year you should do something to either develop a new skill or hone your current skills further whatever your profession. At least every five years you should also look at completing a recognised qualification.
