The Future of Work:

Automation, AI and the Skills of Tomorrow

About the Study

In early 2020, we surveyed over 1,000 respondents of varying demographics and employment status to gain insights into the future of work.

Using a combination of quantitative and qualitive research, our ‘The Future of Work’ study investigated people’s perceptions regarding reskilling and self-education, work-life balance, and job automation. The study also examined people’s perceived readiness for the future of work by taking into account the latest insights on the desired skills of the future.
