The world has continued to witness waves of global changes that have altered our previous perception of the workforce. With the rapid trends of business evolution and workforce, it is evident that up to 65% of the future works of our kids who are still in primary schools are yet to come into existence. This upsurge has caused several new businesses to be born and the old ones to fade away gradually.
The effect of Artificial Intelligence on our workforce has also contributed to our uncertainty of the future for the workforce.
According to an educational expert, about seven skills are needed for surviving the future and they are as follows:
1. Critical reviewing and Crisis Solving
In solving any problem, the deep questions must be asked to be able to proffer a workable solution. Asking quality questions breed good answers. Unfortunately, our children have never learned how to ask questions.
Every innovation was founded on this practice and principle of creative questioning. Once you are having a proper reviewing of a situation will in turn breeds ideas and the basis for innovations.
2. Partnering With Other Associations
Technology has influenced our workforce so greatly that remote workers and non-permanent workers are growing up to 40% of the average workforce of companies in a few years to come. Daily on the increase, big companies have continued to outsource their workforce from diverse remote places of the globe.
3. Liveliness and Flexibility
The world is full of uncertainties and very complex and dynamic. This implies that learning and re-learning of strategies must be a continual routine. This makes it possible for shareholders to refill themselves with the newest technologies, strategies, and trends.
In the midst of numerous employees, owners of industries are still on the lookout for those staff that can on their own intuition; make a new discovery of opportunities. It appears as though the number of individuals who can create ideas and strategies for advancing businesses is thinning out day by day.
5. Competent Communication
According to recent research conducted on effective communication, it reveals that less than 95% of employer respondents agreed that students who are entering high school lack good communication skills. The right use of language and grammar is never a clear communication by the way. Clear communication entails the presentation of the argument in a more persuasive form.
Team players should acquire the skill to generate more leads and customer satisfaction.
6. Processing of Data
Communication has developed to the extent that over 2.5 quintillion bytes of data are being created every day. In as much as people now access a great amount of information, the same applies to the assessment of misleading information. The workforce should learn how to distill information and its source.
Looking ahead of creating an improved workforce, there is a glaring need for business educators to train up better innovators and leaders. By so doing, there would be a greater transformation of the future workforce, as they would be adequately prepared to face the ever-changing future.
