“We are seeing the emergence of a Skills Revolution, where helping people upskill and adapt to a fast-changing world of work will be the defining challenge of our time,” Jonas Prising, ManpowerGroup Chairman & CEO, said in a report by ManpowerGroup entitled “The Skills Revolution.”

“In this Skills Revolution, learnability – the desire and ability to learn new skills to stay relevant and remain employable – will be the great equalizer.” said Jonas Prising, ManpowerGroup Chairman & CEO. “The rise in populism and the polarization of the workforce continues to play out in front of our eyes. It’s time to take immediate action to upskill and reskill employees to address the gaps between the Haves and the Have Nots – those that have the right skills and those that are at risk of being left behind. We also need to draw in those that are not fully participating in the workforce. That’s what we mean by the emergence of a Skills Revolution.”

The report surveyed 18,000 employers across all sectors in 43 countries, and was published by the World Economic Forum.
