Employees and employers know that workers will need training to keep pace with the digitization of jobs. But barriers remain.

Partnerships between educators, governments and employers are seen as one solution, with such collaborations cropping up around the country.
The Capital CoLAB, for example, includes a set of credentials developed by companies and colleges in the Washington, D.C., metro area.
