Key findings: 

 

- Education, healthcare, and wider public sector occupations are likely to grow while some low-skilled jobs, in fields like construction and agriculture, are less likely to suffer poor labor market outcomes

- Future skills predicted to be in greater demand include:

  • Interpersonal skills, (teaching, social perceptiveness, and coordination, as well as related knowledge, such as psychology and anthropology)
  • Higher-order cognitive skills (originality, fluency of ideas, and active learning)
  • Systems skills (the ability to recognize, understand and act on interconnections and feedback loops in sociotechnical systems, systems analysis, and systems evaluation). 


Advice to employers: Begin training existing employees for future skills.
