Emerging Jobs Report
Of all the bright-eyed kids who started primary school this year, two thirds are predicted to start their working lives in a job that does not currently exist.
In fact, new jobs are emerging more rapidly than at any other time in history. It’s not just a case of old jobs dying and fresh jobs being born. Traditional roles are mutating and evolving into new hybrids before our eyes.
Jobs that sounded obscure yesterday – like customer success manager and experience designer – are suddenly commonplace today. As technology rockets forward so goes the job market, although often in ways we might not expect.
For HR and talent acquisition professionals this poses significant challenges. How do you hire for jobs that did not exist five years ago? How can you predict where the gaps in your workforce will be? How do you upskill and reskill your existing workforce to rise to the challenge?
Understanding the macro trends and how they shape the world is key to understanding what your own workplace may soon be looking for.
