The Future of Jobs
Skills and jobs displacement will affect every industry and geographical region, but losses can be offset by job growth in key areas.
The significant impact that technological disruptions are due to have on the world of work means we are approaching a period of significant change. The Forum’s Future of Jobs survey finds that the next 5 years are particularly critical, both in terms of the predicted impact on jobs and because they pose a unique window for adaptation.
This project will examine the impact technological disruptions will have on jobs and work up to 2020 in key industries. It seeks to bring clarity to this debate through the dissemination of accessible, balanced and sector-specific knowledge and to develop actionable insights to help business and governments manage these shifts. The project is a collaboration between the ‘Education, Gender and Work’ and the ‘Digital Economy and Society’ System Initiative’s and their respective communities.
