There’s an urgent need for reskilling.
Forty percent of current workers’ core skills are expected to change in the next five years, which means…
half of all workers will need reskilling by 2025.
Many of the jobs we know today will disappear because an algorithm or robot can do the work far more efficiently or because there'll simply no longer be any demand. Conversely, many new jobs will emerge that we can't even conceive of today!
One thing's for sure – all jobs will change in some way or another. And only the 'future-proof' among us will survive and go on to thrive in these ever-changing or newly emerging jobs.
Futurists, social scientists and consultants (McKinsey) believe that automation and artificial intelligence will transform the workplace as we increasingly start interacting with ever-smarter machines.
For individuals, organizations and society alike. For good and for bad. Human-machine interaction will undoubtedly help us boost productivity, performance and prosperity. But widespread automation and robotization mean less humanity.
The rise of the algorithm means the demise of empathy, connection and nuance. Will we as citizens and workers find this new world too harsh, rigid, alien or even inhumane? Either way, we'll have to adapt as human beings. If we fail to move with the times and learn new skills and abilities, we may become redundant in the future global economy. Demand for certain skills and competences will increase.
For others, such as physical or manual skills, it will decrease.As individuals, we'll have to strengthen existing skills and acquire new ones, and as organizations, we'll have to rethink how we arrange and manage the workplace of the future.
We help enterprises future-proof themselves
In order to become future-proof you must be able to experiment with different behaviours and attitudes. To create an environment and culture where failure and vulnerability are accepted and a foundation for growth.
We believe that sustainable growth comes from within. Start with your own organization and people by strengthen their human capability.
We have these capabilities and skills already – or at least the ability to acquire them. Think of this ability as a muscle. And just like our muscles, it's: Use them or lose them! With regular training, we can get stronger very quickly. Or by sitting on the couch watching Netflix every day, we can get weaker and weaker as our muscles waste away.
We offer programmes to professionals, (future) leaders and change agents to strenghten your human capalility for more creativity, courageous leadership and focus on the things that matter to you in an increasingly distracting world.
