The World Economic Forum estimates that 1 billion people will need to be reskilled by 2030. Of that number, 62 million people work in the AEC, manufacturing, and M&E industries. In particular, the construction and manufacturing industries are undergoing major digital transformations, which is a catalyst driving new jobs and skills for workers in those industries. According to a 2021 report from Burning Glass, the construction and manufacturing industries are moving away from requiring bachelor’s degree qualifications and shifting to skills-based learning and on-the-job training. But that shift requires more than credentialing and certification programs. It’s about a cultural change within companies to keep them competitive in their markets and their employees adaptable to the evolving nature of work. In this panel, execs from HP, Unity, Intel, and Autodesk discuss how automation, technology, and globalization are driving this change and what executives can do to get ahead of it.
