Cape Town - Where will you stand in the job market of the future, and what skills will you need to remain relevant and, more importantly, employed in 2020?
Big changes are coming to the working world, according to a report entitled The Future of Jobs, published on Monday by the World Economic Forum (WEF). The so-called fourth industrial revolution will cause widespread disruption not only to business models but also to labour markets over the next five years, with enormous change predicted in the skill sets needed to thrive in the new landscape, said the WEF.
There will be substantial variations in the impact of this disruption across industries and gender, as well as job type. The jobs toll will be highest in the Healthcare industry in the next five years, according to the report. This will be followed jointly by Energy and Financial Services and Investors.
