THE WORLD OF TO­MOR­ROW

Collective Hub - - PHOTO SERIES -

To pre­pare young peo­ple for this fu­ture, we must ur­gently shift our un­der­stand­ing of what it will mean to be smart in the ‘New Work Or­der’. This was the ad­vice in a re­port re­leased by the Foun­da­tion for Young Aus­tralians, which ex­am­ined the skills school chil­dren should prac­tise for fu­ture em­ploy­ment. Analysing 20 bil­lion hours of work com­pleted by 12 mil­lion Aus­tralians each year, they pre­dict work­ers in 2030 will per­form fewer rou­tine and man­ual tasks, and in­stead fo­cus on hu­man in­ter­ac­tion and strate­gic and cre­ative think­ing. They also pre­dict man­age­ment will fall by 26 per cent so em­ploy­ees will need to act au­tonomously and em­brace an en­tre­pre­neur­ial mind­set.
