  • The Shifting Workforce: Why Intelligent Automation Skills Matter

The growth of intelligent automation across all industries and job roles is dramatically reshaping the global workforce. To stay ahead and compete, it’s imperative to learn new skills, reskill, and upskill. Everyone must be a lifelong learner.

According to a 2019 IBM study, “As business platforms mature and companies continue to introduce new intelligent workflows to succeed on those platforms, the need for continuous reskilling in the workforce will be paramount to remain competitive. Executives recognize that advances in intelligent automation will bring multiple benefits. At the same time, they also realize millions of workers may require retraining/reskilling.”

As a result, it will become vital for organizations to reskill their employees to effectively collaborate with new technologies.

Filling skills gaps

As a business leader, are you offering learning programs to equip your people with the skills needed to stay current with rapidly changing technologies, such as intelligent automation and Robotic Process Automation (RPA)?

As a career builder, how can you take advantage of the breakneck speed of new technologies across industries to gain new skills that propel you in your career?

Trends in emerging jobs show the explosive growth of roles in automation — and highlight skills gaps that exist across industries worldwide. There’s no better time to consider learning new skills to support your career growth and your organization’s digital transformation.

In its 2020 Emerging Jobs Reports, LinkedIn goes in-depth to show which careers are taking off and where. In the U.S., India, and the UK, for example, careers in artificial intelligence (AI) and RPA show up within the top four emerging roles.
