We need a global reskilling revolution by 2025
The World Economic Forum have also reported that almost 50% of their workforce will require significant re- and upskilling. By 2025, it’s predicted that analytical thinking, creativity, and flexibility will be among the most desired skills by employers who are looking to hire.

By 2030 as many as 375 million workers, which is approximately 14% percent of the global workforce, may need to switch occupational categories, according to a McKinsey Global report. As digitisation, automation, and advances in artificial intelligence become major disruptors in the world of work, is it will be necessary that the workforce adapts alongside.
Although many business leaders are gaining awareness of the rapidly growing scale of the task that ahead, this has had yet to translate into much significant action.
