It is incontestable that the nature and structure of work is changing. Therefore, it is critical for emerging technologies to necessitate changes in both workforce and education to prepare for a radically different future. Why so? Simply because new technologies develop so rapidly that current workers need new skillsets to rival that pace. As a result, leading businesses need to reshape the nature of work to create new forms of value and scale up ‘new skilling’. In addition, a new education system is needed to help gain versatile skills that can’t be automated, such as creativity, emotional intelligence, critical thinking, ethics and lifelong learning.
