The tech-savvy workforce will drive your business in future

A 2019 report by Oxford Economics predicted 12.5 million manufacturing jobs will be automated in China by 2030. In the aftermath of the pandemic, it could be way more.

In a report by McKinsey, it projected that up to 30% of jobs in the US will be automated by 2030, and Automation and AI will lift productivity and economic growth. However, it will come with a cost to be paid by the workforce as well. Millions of people worldwide may need to switch occupations or upgrade skills in order to accommodate these jobs.

The World Economic Forum (WEF) estimated the emerging professions resulting from automation could account for 6.1 million jobs globally between 2020 to 2022. We have yet to see how the global pandemic will impact jobs in the long term, but the safest part of all jobs must be in an acceleration in automation to keep human workers, employees, and consumers safe.

Venture investors must seek the right technology, which yields higher-wage, rewarding work and higher-quality, cheaper, more sustainable, safer products, and services. Though the key focus remains to be how the workforce will keep up with the upcoming technology and what pathway will lead them towards that direction.
