The development of art intelligence, machine learning and the Internet of Things will not only change the way we live, but also the way we work, so billions of young people will not be ready for the jobs of the future.
By 2030, more than half of the 1.8 billion young people around the world, ages 15 to 29, today, will not have the skills or qualifications needed to actively participate in the workforce, according to a report of Deloitte.
Nearly two billion young people across the globe are at risk of becoming inadequate in the labor market in the fourth industrial revolution (Industry 4.0), which is rising sharply as a result of emerging technologies.
If you are at the beginning and want to know what skills you need to be successful in the fourth industrial revolution, then it is recommended that you develop technical skills, but also soft skills, but also entrepreneurship, but also “an attitude that emphasizes lifelong learning”.
The report also provides four main recommendations to initiate the change, alignment of objectives and approaches for all categories of people involved or involved, involvement in public policies, the development of sound human resources management strategies and investment in workforce training.
The report concludes that the business environment must take a more active role in preparing today’s young people for the jobs of the future to adapt to Industry 4.0, characterized by the physical fusion of digital technologies such as robotics, artificial intelligence, the Internet of Things (IoT), digitization and automation.
The Deloitte report is based on responses from 15 to 29-year-olds from 45 countries, representatives from the business community and NGOs, political and economics experts, and academia.
