Change must come from both employers and employees to survive pandemic
A shift in mindset is necessary for businesses to transform digitally in order to survive the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic.
And this change must come from both employers and employees – the willingness of firms to embrace technology and employees being open to upskilling and adapting to changes. Companies will have to change their business models to survive, and workers whose jobs no longer exist will have to re-skill and move to new sectors.
In fact, “attitudinal” training – the building up of a good mindset towards embracing change – is just as important as skills training.
Traditional jobs are morphing into something different or disappearing altogether.
According to a recent study, almost 30 percent of all work activities could be automated by 2030, your job may be replaced by automation.
So why is upskilling suddenly becoming so important?
The short answer is digital transformation.
The digital economy, along with advances in technology, has drastically changed how goods and services are bought and sold.
Jobs that once existed may not be around anymore, and new jobs are being created almost on a daily basis.
This begs the big question, especially if you have been unemployed for a while, are your skills still relevant?
