A TRANSFORMATION OF SKILLS IS NEEDED TO MATCH THE TRANSFORMATION OF ACTIVITIES
The potential number of jobs gained can only be attained if available skills match the need for such jobs; otherwise, job opportunities might remain vacant or be transferred to other countries. While the analysis in this report suggests that job gains can compensate for losses in terms of numbers, new (and existing) jobs and activities will require different skills.
We estimate that demand for tasks that require basic cognitive or physical and manual skills will both decline by around 20 percent, which translates into 175,000 and 250,000 fewer employees, respectively. In contrast, demand for social and emotional, and technological skills is set to rise by approximately 20 percent and around 15 percent, respectively — or the equivalent of 145,000 and 65,000 new jobs (see Box 4 in Chapter 4 for details of our methodology). In a scenario that includes an estimate of skill shifts within sectors, jobs, and activities related to increasing use of digital technology as well as direct shifts of activities due to automation, there may be a much higher need for technological (particularly basic digital) skills as employees increasingly work alongside technology. In such a scenario, there could be more than 200,000 more employees needed for jobs requiring technological skills.
