When we imagine a future workforce, it may spark images of a scene from a sci-fi movie where our everyday lives are completely automated by AI and run by robots that are indistinguishable from human beings. We may not be living in that reality just yet, but the global pandemic has accelerated how we work almost 8-9 years into the future, and we are quickly learning to adapt. It may be tempting to think the workforce of the future from the sci-fi movies is far away, but as the pandemic has proved, disruption can happen at any time. The future workforce is here, now.

Keith Keating, Senior Director of Global Learning Strategies, reveals some insights into the opportunities, challenges, and global trends impacting our workforce and how the pandemic has necessitated the need for both organizations and learners to be ready to fill the next skills gaps of today, for tomorrow.
