9 March 2021 9am – 10.30am Partner event Online


The UK workforce is set to experience a raft of changes in forthcoming years, many of which will see fundamental shifts in demand for certain skills. Research from McKinsey shows that increasing adoption of emerging technology in the workplace will lead to up to 10 million people needing to transition between occupations or skills by 2030.

Faethm's latest research report “State of the UK Workforce 2021 Report” shows significant changes are already on the horizon for the coming year, let alone 2030. With insights showing that 4.8% of the UK workforce could be automated next year, with Retail being the industry that is unsurprisingly hit the hardest, the future of work is most definitely now. We need to see the opportunity within this change and take the time to mitigate risks with effective, data driven planning. 

Join us for an interactive webinar, with guest host Katherine Holden, Head of Data Analytics, AI and Digital ID, techUK, and hear our expert speakers discuss the challenges they’re facing and their views on the state of the UK workforce in 2021.
