According to research, soft skill-intensive occupations will account for two-thirds of all jobs by 2030. It is estimated that between 400 million and 800 million individuals could be displaced by automation and would need to find new jobs.
Workers of the future will spend more time on activities that machines are less capable of, such as managing people effectively, applying emotional intelligence, and communicating with others as opposed to physical activities, collecting, and processing data, where machines would exceed human performance.
Yet, studies show that there is a significant skills mismatch between employers’ requirements and employees’ display of skills in the workplace, particularly soft skills. To prepare people for this impending shift, individuals and organizations need to reimagine workforce skills development.
In response to the skills gap, BMGA Foundation deploys online courses on essential soft skills using modern methodology that is rooted in the science of learning and behavior.
