According to ANZ’s Head of Learning Rita Newman, that means businesses have an obligation to create a culture of learning among their people. But more than that: those organisations which do create a learning culture will be those that succeed.
"Everyone needs to be thinking about how they can constantly learn, grow and equip themselves to really have the skills required for tomorrow.” – Newman
“Organisations, industries and society at large have a responsibility really to ensure their people are equipped to be learning new skills,” she told bluenotes on video and podcast. “(They must) provide different opportunities for them to access different types of learning."
“These are the organisations that will win and in turn offer something back to employees.”
Newman said by 2030 it is estimated 800 million jobs globally will be impacted by technology but 85 per cent of that era’s jobs don't actually exist today.
“The world is changing and no one is immune from it,” she said. “Everyone needs to be thinking about how they can learn new skills and constantly learn, grow and equip themselves to really have the skills required… for tomorrow.”
