The Skills Imperative 2035: An Analysis of the Demand for Skills in the Labour Market in 2035

by | 0 comments

The global economy is changing rapidly. New technologies, coupled with demographic and environmental change, will continue to disrupt national economies and their labour markets in the coming decades. These changes will impact the jobs available and the skills needed to do them. If left unaddressed, differences between skills supply and demand could have consequences for: individuals, who may lack the requisite skills to access satisfying and economically sustaining work; employers, who may struggle to find workers with the skills they need; society as a whole, which may experience widening inequalities as well as continuing poor productivity and weak economic growth. The Skills Imperative 2035 aims to help identify policy and practice responses that might mitigate or prevent the potential impacts of skills mismatches.
