New technology always creates new jobs. From the dawn of time, every invention might have eliminated one job, but it created a few more — people just needed the right skills. This has never been truer than it is today. Technologies are created at a breakneck pace. In 2019, nearly 80% of CEOs said they were concerned about the workplace skills gap — up from just 56% in 2011. From RPA to robots, technology is completing repetitive tasks, making some jobs obsolete. But again, it’s not eliminating workers. In fact, these new technologies are creating new jobs, which require people with the right skills — this is where upskilling initiatives are coming in to play. Companies like Amazon, Google, Microsoft, and Salesforce have pledged money and created new programs to upskill their workforces. They are committed to keep employees working even as technology is introduced to displace current jobs. Through Jacksonville University's UpSkill Institute, you can gain the skills employers are seeking in the latest technologies!
