      The greatest irony of the coronavirus pandemic may be that many of the American workers now considered the most essential were among those treated as the most disposable before the outbreak began. This book explores the concept of skills drain, looking at how key competencies can be identified and then transferred from experienced workers to novices. It looks at the innovative solutions managers are seeking to ensure that their workers are sufficiently trained, and then develops a protocol for doing so.
