Workforce of the future 2030

Global trends challenged by African realities 

The Fourth Industrial Revolution is initiating immense change, driven by the mutually interdependant forces of artificial intelligence, the Internet of Things (IoT), network-based logic, augmented and virtual reality and quantum computing, which are expected to shape the next decade. This has led to many CEOs making digital initiatives their number one priority. But for CEOs in Africa the path ahead is less clear with regard to both technology and people. African CEOs identify insufficient understanding of the disruptive changes as the single biggest obstacle to future workforce planning, followed by resource constraints and insufficient alignment of their organisations’ talent strategies with their broader innovation strategies.
