TAGHEER’s findings on markets revealed that many employees require training to develop skills relevant to their job roles. Others include the below:

•⁠ ⁠Basic IT & media-related skills: Employees need training in basic IT and media-related skills to stay competitive in today’s digital landscape.
•⁠ ⁠Business management skills: Many employees require training in business management skills to effectively manage teams and projects.
•⁠ ⁠Training and development skills: Employees need training and development opportunities to enhance their skills and knowledge.
•⁠ ⁠Budget and resources: Many businesses lack sufficient budget and resources to invest in employee training and development.
•⁠ ⁠Up-to-date knowledge: Employees need training to stay up-to-date with the latest trends, technologies, and best practices in their industry.
•⁠ ⁠Literacy skills: A substantial number of employees lack basic literacy skills, hindering their ability to effectively communicate and perform tasks.

Respondents emphasized the need for enhanced training opportunities and supportive employer practices to facilitate continuous learning and professional development. They highlighted the importance of improving training quality, particularly through updated curricula and methodologies that address advanced technical skills. Additionally, recommendations were made to reduce barriers such as financial constraints and time limitations, with a specific focus on addressing gender-specific challenges to improve access for all workforce.

Our findings provide donors and international development partners with valuable insights into effective solutions for enhancing workforce capacity and optimizing training arrangements, contributing to a more robust economy in Afghanistan.
