The world is changing at incredible speed. We live in a time of globalization, computerization, digitization and automation. Probably the biggest challenges since World War II are now awaiting us. The nature of work is rapidly changing in the labor market, manual, so-called blue-collar, jobs are disappearing and new, instead requiring less physical work but all the more digital or cognitive skills, job positions are emerging.
The Future of Work program seeks to inform students about how the labor market is evolving, what professions are dying out and which trends are currently on the rise.
In addition, we seek to familiarize program participants with what their future employers look for and what will they look for in the near future, thus preparing as many young people as possible for changes in the demand for work. With these measures, we attempt to prevent future unemployment and lack of qualified people for new era jobs.
The main program objective is directly in line with the primary objective of SAIDE association, which is to prepare all young people for the future world of work - and thus preventing their unemployment.
Lack of information can adversely affect their decision-making, slow their skills development and their inadequate preparation may potentially lead to them being unusable for the labor market.
