IOE Update: Future of Work Report, IOE Global Employers’ Summit

The Future of Work Report

The International Organization of Employers (IOE) has recently published a report on the Future of Work, which presents perspectives on labor market fluctuations in job creation and transformation, technological change and new skills, changes in business models and ways or working, as well as challenges and opportunities in policy-making.  This Report is one of the IOE work products that will inform the B20 Employment and Education Task Force that is co-chaired by USCIB CEO and President Peter Robinson.

The Report states that “institutions will need to be much more ambitious in providing enhanced access to lifelong learning and educational opportunities. To inform investment decisions on education and skills, as well as to inform individual career choices in an ongoing challenging environment, it will be essential to rely on more real-time, finely-tuned, holistic and dynamic data.”

An Executive Summary is available here.
