Future of Work Series, episode # Why it is a hot topic for Governments

The world of work is changing at an unprecedented rate. The speed of innovation such as IoT, robotic automation, Artificial Intelligence, new trends such as the platform economy or societal elements such as changing demographics or influx of immigration are all creating unprecedented disruption, where the only certainty seems to be that all  jobs will somehow be impacted in the future.

Digitalization offers new opportunities for workers & organisations alike, for example, enabling new business models which stimulates a growth of independent workers or better inclusion of people with disabilities as an active part for the workforce, as well as greater agility for organisations to meet the market demands. It equally allows for finding new ways to both match prospective employees with employers as well as help governments understand or anticipate macro and micro-trends to optimize social security or educational systems. Technologies like AI, robotic automation or 3D Printing have the ability to challenge competitiveness of companies and entire national economies, hence, harnessing these innovations will provide competitive advantage of the overall nation in the global economy.

In this complex & evolving scenario, governments have a leading role to play, ranging from understanding the disruptive elements, adapt their policies and services, to facilitating strong ecosystems inclusive of public and private stakeholders, all this with a view to continue to drive overall competitiveness of their economies for the benefit of the citizens and business which they serve.

Microsoft proposal to empower a Future Ready Workforce is described in the attached whitepaper.
