Why should I continue to focus on my personal development?

The labor market is changing rapidly due to automation of repetitive tasks and robotics. This will cause many employees to change job or sector more quickly. To be prepared for that change and to be able to carry out multiple jobs during your career, it is important to be well-educated and to continue to develop your knowledge and skills. Go to Together Future Proof for more information on how to prepare yourself for the future.

New jobs and sectors

Many jobs in e.g. the banking sector have been lost in the past years due to automation. The emergence of robotics is also expected to affect the jobs in many sectors. On the other hand, technological changes will also bring about new jobs. This means, that you, as employee, will change job or sector more often during your career than former generations. To be prepared for a future with multiple jobs, you need proper education and you need to continuously develop your knowledge and skills. 

21st century skills

The technologies developed during the fourth industrial revolution, such as artificial intelligence, robotics, connectivity, 3D printing, blockchain and bio- and nanotechnology have a huge impact on the duties and jobs of working people. It is therefore necessary to have certain skills to be able to meet the needs of this changing labor market. These skills are called 21st century skills. In short: skills you need to perform well in this century, such as critical and creative thinking, how to solve problems, media literacy, information skills and computational thinking. These skills can be divided into four categories: social skills, personal skills, self-regulation and digital literacy. Do you want to find out how skilled you are?
