Starting with the Covid 19 pandemic, the world of work underwent a revolution. Not only because of the speed with which the changes had to be implemented, such as remote work, but also because of the transformations that are planned in the medium and long term. It is estimated that

50% of all employees - globally - will need retraining in the next four to five years,

as adoption of new technologies increases, according to a Future of Jobs Report from the Forum World Economic.

In this framework, expert projections indicate that

40% of the skills that companies require today will change


For example, more

specialists in Big Data, digital marketing, software developers or specialists in the Internet of Things will be required.

And instead, companies will dispense with administrative positions, employees for data entry or personnel to repair machines, among other skills that will no longer be so essential.

About how the work scenario will be presented in the coming years, Laura Tabares, executive director of Intuic, a communication services platform that employs women from all over the world, explains

why new skills will be necessary in the near future and which are.

"By 2025 the new normal will be technological," he shoots before Clarín's query.

“When pandemics ravage societies, they disrupt critical structures such as economic life, socioeconomic class structures, and everyday family life.

The Covid19 pandemic will have repercussions in all aspects of our lives and the way we work will also have to be readjusted, "he says.

People's relationship with technology will deepen

as broader segments of the population depend more on digital connections for work, education, healthcare, daily business transactions, and essential social interactions.

Some describe it as a "tele everything" world, he says.

"Not only will technology training top the list of skills that employers believe are indispensable for years to come. It will also be necessary to have the ability to develop

critical thinking, leadership and social influence, and practical problem solving

. And the ability to adapt to change:

Be resilient, flexible and tolerant of stress to face new ways of working.

In addition, new leaders will be needed who know how to inspire and motivate their collaborators, for example, from a distance.

What will be the skills demanded by employers globally in four years.

The Covid-19 pandemic caused at least 26 million people to lose their jobs in Latin America and the Caribbean during 2020, according to data from the International Labor Organization (ILO).

"But we have also observed the arrival of new ways of working and

companies are increasingly betting on hiring remote work teams,"

says Tabares.

The widespread adoption of "distance" processes such as teleworking, telemedicine, virtual schooling, electronic commerce, and others, is on the rise.

In 2025, there will be more people working from home, more virtual social and entertainment interactions, and fewer forays into public than in recent years.

Is a limited labor market coming to the younger generations?

According to the expert, “whoever has the ability to renew will be able to continue in the labor market.

These days everything flows, everything changes and nothing remains.

We have to adapt to the new circumstances.

The new ways of working will also be by digital tribes.

Projects led by a person but that are specified to carry out a specific project.

And this is how many young people work now.

By specific projects and at a distance;

but this does not exclude older generations;

although it will force them to readjust to the new labor paradigms.
