New digital technologies are diffusing more and more into the economy. Production processes and organisations are changing; new products, services and business models emerge. Together with socio-demographic shifts in Europe's active workforce, digitisation has important implications for the European labour market.
Digitisation and technological innovation will oblige people to update their skills, acquire 21st century competencies, and adopt a growth mindset, if they want to maintain their competitive advantage in a changing world. To improve chances of innovation success, organisations will also need to become purpose-driven and self-organized, and foster a culture of autonomy and ownership.
Companies and organisations will need to build a versatile and resilient working environment, with room for diversity, inclusion and flexibility. Employers will need to cater to today’s shift towards a versatile and resilient working environment where both the people and the organisation can thrive.
