The need to increase productivity and efficiency in the workplace and shift to a more sustainability-minded workforce is resulting in changes to the global labour pool as new skill sets, standards, and technologies become engrained into everyday operations. Economies that are focused on moving toward a more competitive workforce by integrating sustainability and best practices into the mainstream can seize the potential for job creation, so long as they can deal effectively with the structural changes and transformation of existing jobs. Skills development is one of the keys to unlocking this job potential.
In addition, understanding workforce dynamics and the availability of skilled workers in a given region is essential for future planning purposes and to unlocking job potential. Quantifying the available resources and employment opportunities available in a jurisdiction can help senior policy-makers with decision-making and understand the size and scope of the economic potential.
