- The function and makeup of the workforce will change as industries adapt to new technology and processes, raising questions about how educational models are responding to deliver relevant training, explains a new white paper from the World Economic Forum and the Boston Consulting Group.
- The report examines eight possible outcomes for the future of work based on three variables: educational models, workers’ economic mobility and the rate of technological advancement. A combination of the outcomes is most likely, the authors note.
- One common theme throughout the outcomes is what the report positions as a consequence of educational models being slow to adapt to workforce needs: displaced workers competing for fewer jobs as industries become increasingly automated.
