[B4] The Future of Skills and Employment – Identifying the Needs of your Workforce

The future of work is brighter than conventional wisdom suggests – it’s time to stop agonising about machines taking our jobs.  Research from Pearson shows that many of today’s roles will still be in demand by 2030 and beyond, but that they may require different skills. Preparing people for the jobs of the future is therefore core to the success of our organisations and societies as a whole.

The session will be hosted by Pearson and will use their cross-industry research on the future of employment and skills for a discussion around:

  • the top skills and occupations of 2030 and how today’s role will change
  • how you can identify the skills that your workforce will need in the future
  • how you can predict what talent your organisation will need to succeed
