Employment in 2030: Trends Expected to Impact the Future of Work
The Brookfield Institute for Innovation + Entrepreneurship recently released a report entitled: Ahead by a Decade: Employment in 2030 as part of their Employment in 2030 project. This project examines the skills and occupations that will be in highest demand as well as the trends that will have the greatest impact. Not surprisingly, a number of the trends expected to impact the future of work are related to current and emerging technologies.
