Jobs & Skills

New technology is bringing profound change to the labor market, offering opportunities for new occupations to emerge, while threatening some existing jobs. The potential prize is a stable and peaceful society in which technology is harnessed to ensure unprecedented levels of prosperity. The potential risk is a world defined by mass unemployment and extreme inequality.

To respond to this change effectively, you need insight on the current and future demand and supply of jobs and workforce skills in the economy. We provide this insight by understanding the key drivers of change and analyzing labor market information to interpret current and future trends. And, we can estimate the economic value of investment in human capital and workforce training initiatives.

In this way you can confidently assess which interventions will lead to the most desirable outcomes.

Some challenging questions we can help you answer:
