This report analyzes key drivers that will reshape the landscape of work and identifies
key work skills needed in the next 10 years. It does not consider what will be the jobs of
the future. Many studies have tried to predict specific job categories and labor requirements.
Consistently over the years, however, it has been shown that such predictions
are difficult and many of the past predictions have been proven wrong. Rather than
focusing on future jobs, this report looks at future work skills—proficiencies and abilities
required across different jobs and work settings.
