2017 Year In Review

Digitization and automation are impacting organizations at an unprecedented pace. Human ingenuity and preference will be the linchpin for how we leverage technology in our lives and businesses. And in all future scenarios, helping people to upskill in this fast-changing world of work will be what ensures their employability, and it must also happen at speed and at scale.

We are in the midst of a Skills Revolution. Technology is transforming organizations, skills needs are changing rapidly and we know companies cannot find the talent they need. People with in-demand skills who can continually learn and adapt can call the shots. Those with ubiquitous skills see wages stagnating and insecurity ahead, playing out in politics, protectionism and populism.

We need to help people think differently too. We must nurture people’s curiosity and learnability so they have the desire and ability to continuously develop their skills to stay employable. With the right skills mix, people will augment rather than compete with technology. Helping people upskill and future proof themselves will be the defining challenge of our time.
