The BTG 2020 Skills Index

Ranking the Most In-Demand and Fastest Growing Independent Talent Skills for Our New Reality

Skills to count on in an uncertain world

In these uncertain times, leading companies need new ways to address both the challenges of today and the growth opportunities of tomorrow. Now more than ever, independent talent marketplaces are becoming an indispensable piece of human capital infrastructure—delivering a safe, flexible, and cost-effective source for the skills and expertise companies need to get critical work done.

99%
of all companies are both embarking on a transformation this year and reporting significant skill gaps, according to Mercer

84%
of teams would either delay, cancel, or extend project workloads if unable to engage independent talent, according to Upwork

In our third annual Skills Index, based on BTG's proprietary data, we examine how trends have rapidly shifted—over the past year and within the months in which the pandemic swept the globe—to show how leading companies increasingly rely on independent talent to fill expanding skill gaps, manage through uncertainty, move nimbly in recovery, and prepare for the post-pandemic future of work.

Here's what you'll find in The 2020 BTG Skills Index:

  • 12-Month Skill Trends: The most in-demand and fastest growing skills for 2020 overall and by industry
  • Skills in the COVID-19 Era: Trends showing how independent talent are helping companies respond to rapid shifts in the global business landscape
  • Remote Work Is (Any)Where It's At: Insights on how to keep key workstreams moving with independent talent
  • Where Do We Go from Here? Anticipated trends and business opportunities as we transition from COVID crisis control to economic recovery
