Three key charts from the 'Digital Skills Gap in Government' report

Digital transformation is a unique and idiosyncratic process, wholly dependant on the organisation in question.

However, that's not to say there aren't lessons we can learn by looking at case studies. Indeed, the UK Government has been a crucible of digital innovation for some years.

So, what better place to look for lessons on addressing the digital skills gap within your own business?

The four major marketing sinkholes... and how to get unstuck

Online marketing is a world fraught with danger. Some dangers are obvious. Others... not so much.

How to bridge the marketing skills gap

As part of our report titled ‘Marketing Pain Points and How to Overcome Them’ in collaboration with SmartFocus, we surveyed more than 500 client-side marketers earlier this year to find out what their pain points were. 

One of the key points that arose from the survey was a growing concern over the skills gap within the industry.

Why companies should give digital marketers time off for training

No one can doubt the importance of enabling employees to develop themselves and learn new skills by attending relevant training sessions.

Not only does it improve productivity and encourage new ways of thinking, but it can have a positive impact on employee satisfaction as it aids career development.

However, in the day-to-day rush to get things done it’s easy to see training as a low priority.

Managers are under pressure to meet deadlines so feel they can’t afford to let staff take time out of the office for learning and development.

This is an understandable view point but one that is extremely short-sighted, as in the long term it will have a negative impact on productivity and staff retention.

So if you’re struggling to convince management of the need to allow staff time out of the office to attend training courses, here are a few arguments you can use to back up your case.

Client-side marketers earn more than their agency peers: report

If you want to be rich then you’re better off working client-side than in an agency, according to a new survey on marketing salaries.

Across all digital industries respondents working in-house earned more than people at the same level in agencies.

For example, the average salary for junior employees was £23,310 in agencies compared to £26,161 in client-side roles.

The gap was closest at senior level with agency respondents being paid £60,830 on average compared to £61,873 on client-side, but then the difference grew to roughly £20,000 at c-level (£95,212 vs. £114,199).
