Is Your Career Future Ready?

Most of the jobs in the economy today are still based on the industrial paradigm, and, as many global institutions predicted, are poised to be eliminated in the coming years. The World Economic Forum terms this impending upheaval as the Fourth Industrial Revolution. Within the next decade, we will see more disruptions of the marketplace and workforce due to rapid technological advancements, such as artificial intelligence, robotics and autonomous vehicles. Around the world, many corporate professionals across the industries are expected to be displaced and disoriented by this megatrend.

ETHAN TAN, EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR OF SINGAPORE HUMAN RESOURCES INSTITUTE (SHRI)

“Technology convergence is transforming the way we work and think, how we consume and how we relate. As an advanced economy, "Singapore’s workforce will be among the first in the global economy to be impacted – bring about the threat of jobs loss and the opportunities of new possibilities. PMEs should be mindful of what trends are impacting us just around the corner to prevent us from being blind-sided – and to be invested in new skills and technology so as to be poised to be the first to enjoy the fruits of technologically-advanced economy. Charlie has been the tireless herald of this technology wave, raising awareness and recommendations on how technology both disrupts the unprepared, and enables the prepared. He calls on all Singaporeans, all PMEs, all schools and all business to become innovation-driven. His ‘Future of Work’ series of talks and interventions will always be a source of inspiration, wonder and motivation to me and my teams at SHRI and The 8th Pinnacle.”
