We're in the midst of a Skills Revolution. Technology is transforming organisations and skills needs are changing rapidly. This is accelerating a global talent shortage and threatening productivity, sustainability and growth. Now more than ever, technical skills are hard to find and soft skills are hard to train. New thinking is required to attain a successful outcome for organisations and individuals alike. Leverage ManpowerGroup research, tools and insights to overcome your most difficult workforce challenges, and create a talent strategy for the digital age.
Digitisation is here to stay, so it's time to focus on how we integrate humans with machines. In the future of work, employees will need to develop new skills; businesses will need to embrace new ways of structuring work; and leaders will need new talent strategies, so they can each capture opportunities in a transforming world.
The jobs of today look different to yesterday, and they will look different again tomorrow. But with data-led insights and strategic workforce planning, organisations can evolve their workforce to meet the challenges that the future will hold. Take a look below at a selection of our latest insights into the Future of Work and Skills.
Robots are being added to the workforce – but humans are too. More employers than ever plan to increase or maintain headcount as a result of automation. Yet talent shortages are at a 12-year high, and companies are realising they can no longer expect to find just-in-time talent on tap.
We interviewed 19,000 employers about the impact of technology on their talent strategy. 38% of organisations say it's difficult to train technology skills; while 43% said it's even harder to teach the soft skills they need, like communication and analytical thinking. What’s more, 79% of employers plan to buy the skills they need, either paying higher market prices or improving compensation for existing staff.
