The rise of Asia as a major contributor to the world’s economy and consumption highlights the importance of being prepared for the future of work. With the COVID-19 pandemic accelerating automation and changing the way work is done, it is crucial for individuals, businesses, industries, and countries to be prepared to adapt.
In Asia Pacific (APAC), 60% of the global workforce is located, and some of the largest developing economies can be found. This makes the region a significant focus for initiatives aimed at making the transition to new technologies smoother, through upskilling and reskilling, and promoting a people-centered culture.
Businesses are expected to increase their adoption of Robotic Process Automation (RPA) in the coming year, which highlights the need to prepare for the impact of technology on work. It is important to ensure that everyone is ready to adapt to these changes so that they can take advantage of the opportunities presented by the growing economy in Asia.
In conclusion, as the world of work continues to evolve, it is essential to stay ahead of the curve and be prepared for the changes that lie ahead. The Asia Pacific region, with its significant workforce and developing economies, offers many opportunities, and it is up to us to ensure that we are ready to seize them.
