Digitalisation & the Future of Work

The onset of COVID-19 accelerated the move towards digitalisation as employers and employees were forced to adapt to working from home. The rapid shift contributed to both the creation and displacement of jobs based on digital skill.

In 2020, the World Economic Forum projected that as many as 85 million jobs would be displaced due to digitalisation and automation by 2025, while 97 million new jobs would be created to address the emerging skillsets required by companies.

As the world moves towards digitalisation, the need to either reskill or upskill has become increasingly important to be able to adapt to future job needs.
