Data Literacy Discussions: Companies struggling to unlock data opportunities

Hi guys, 

I spotted this new research which has found that companies across EMEA are struggling the unlock the opportunities in their data:

Reasons for this included being unable to translate data into actionable insights, despite recognising the potential of data to make their companies more efficient, innovative and customer centric. Furthermore, over a third (36%) of those surveyed said that not having the skills in place to manage the explosion of data was one of their biggest concerns. 

Does this chime true with your own workplace experiences? What tips do you have for others who are trying to combat this issue?

Let us know!


  • I have to agree, and I think it is dreadfully uncomfortable to be a leader and not be able to say you need some help with these aspects of data literacy. Still, few companies are able to articulate these needs clearly enough to hire someone who can bring these skills to the table. Also, an ATS doesn't "get" it, so using one to run a search at that level is going to weed out your most qualified candidates.
