According to the ‘Future of Jobs Report 2018’ issued in September 2018 by the World Economic Forum (WEF), a whopping 54 percent of all employees will require “significant” training to either upgrade their skills or acquire new skills altogether by 2022.
Nearly one in four companies said they’re undecided or unlikely to pursue the retraining of existing employees. Two-thirds expect their workers to either adapt or pick-up skills as their jobs evolve.
But AI and robotics will continue to get stronger, eventually matching, and then exceeding, human capabilities in virtually every conceivable domain. It’s thus hard to imagine this trend lasting into the 2030s and beyond.MORE
