“New study forecasts only one in five workers are in occupations that will shrink; lays out blueprint for reskilling workers
“The Future of Skills: Employment in 2030″ The study takes an entirely new approach to forecasting employment and skill demands in the US and UK.
– 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.
