The Future of Work and Skills
Since a 2015 paper from Oxford estimated 47% of the US workforce was at risk of automation there has been a wealth of research about the Future of Work. Academics, economists and major institutions have explored how the way we work could change, the nature of jobs and the disruptive impacts of technology. However these have produced divergent conclusions, predictions and solutions and so it’s hard to feel prepared for what changes can come. But while we may not be able to fully know the future of our work, an area we can tangibly influence is the future of our personal skills.
