The skills revolution: Digitalization and why skills and talent matter
The outcomes of technology’s impact on employment are not really known for sure. Predictions suggest that there will be more jobs, different jobs, less jobs, even no jobs. However, not much is being written about how people will need new skills more often to stay employable for jobs that may not have been heard of yet. This report presents new findings based on a 2016 survey of 18,000 employers in 43 countries across six industry sectors to determine how they expect technology will impact their business in the next two years, and how they are ensuring their workforce has the right skills and is ready to adapt.
