The 4 things business leaders can do to build a sustainable workforce

  • Businesses must advocate for a modernized education system to boost the hard and soft skills employees need in the Fourth Industrial Revolution.
  • Artificial intelligence and machine learning will change the future of work but also provide new ways to train and reskill staff.
  • A top-down approach to learning led by executives and more flexible approaches to training will be necessary.

For years, the Annual Meeting of the World Economic Forum has provided an opportunity for industry leaders to discuss the rise and impact of emerging technologies. The rise of artificial intelligence (AI), automation and machine learning within business practices and how these technologies will affect and influence our workforce has become a common theme of discussion.

But the time for talk has passed; now we must act.

As business leaders, we understand that implementing these technologies is crucial to remaining competitive. There is no “if” – only “when” and “how much”. Today, we all agree that AI, automation, and machine learning bring tremendous value, in terms of efficiency, speed, and flexibility, and we must ensure that our companies implement these technologies to remain ahead of the curve and the competition.
