Workers adapt to thrive

07-09-2017

A new study has revealed that 74% of people are ready to learn a new skill or completely retrain to keep themselves employable. The findings are from PwC’s latest report, Workforce of the future: the competing forces shaping 2030, which includes findings from a survey of 10,000 people across the UK, Germany, China, India and the US. Their views reinforce a shift to continuous learning while earning, so employees can keep up with technology’s impact on jobs and the workplace. According to the report, the majority of respondents believe technology will improve their job prospects (65%) although workers in the US (73%) and India (88%) are more confident than those in the UK (40%) and Germany (48%). Overall, nearly three quarters believe technology will never replace the human mind (73%) and the majority (86%) say human skills will always be in demand.
