Future of Work

‘We need greater focus on training for jobs that have yet to appear. It is
expected, that by 2022, 27% of jobs will be in roles that don’t yet exist.
Skills are becoming obsolete at an increasingly fast rate—technical skills,
are outdated in 2 -5 years, heightening the need for reskilling and upskilling’.
