As labour markets evolve, we must ensure that digital transformation leads to more and better jobs and to facilitate just transitions from one job to the next.

Description

Digital transformation leads to creative destruction, with jobs being lost and others being created. But employment rates are at record high levels in many countries. As labour markets transform, many of the new jobs are likely to differ from the ones we know. Empowering people with the mix of skills needed to succeed in a digital world of work, including by improving education and training systems throughout the life cycle, facilitating job-to-job transitions and ensuring adequate social protection, is essential. Some workers are likely to benefit more from digital transformation than others, and an adequate safety net is needed to ensure a successful and fair transition for all.
