RT Skill sets will keep changing with time, as it being part of evolutionary process. But, I feel ability to perform all these skills well, there would not be much biologically. Natural Inclinations what sums up into competencies will, in fact, remain static more or less.
Regarding workforce, I don't see much change in its natural inclinations as it requires significant biological changes in human beings. It means scientific focus should be on what is there in brain and building a relationship with work requirements & brain functions.
RT If we look back into human civilizations, technological inventions and innovations were part of their development. It means, things will keep changing with time.
There are statistics that speak a loud about the growing unemployment in the country, so much so that highly qualified individuals are forced to take up meagre jobs to make a livelihood. To avoid any kind of social unrest, how more employment opportunities can be generated?
Is the current HR ecosystem ready to take on the challenges of a highly demanding and dynamic future workforce? How HR should evolve and upgrade its competencies to address this challenge?
For HR, it needs a serious course correction. It should not remain owner of some physical activities in a company. It should acquire more psychological and biological knowledge to understand human beings. Perhaps, then only HR can add value to whole gamut of business, as people specialists, like other functions.
RT I see a possibility of this where HR can play a very critical role in aligning people requirements with business requirements. HR should develop capability to foresee business changes and its requirements. More time should be devoted to this piece then simply be on shop floor to waste time and still be reactive. Machine will always be second to man. They have been created by human brain which scientists still are not able to understand it fully. It means brain capability utilisation will keep increasing, although, bit by bit only. Human brain will keep creating something which will control and govern what it has produced before. Workplace is certainly going to be flooded with more machines. Philosophically, creation and destruction go hand in hand.
RT Society at large should change the perception of work. It should respect work as work and not classify into high end and low end. Secondly, qualification gives some knowledge and more information. Therefore, it has to be made clear to young generation first that success is only when they convert information into knowledge and knowledge into required skills to be employable. I see people having simple information assuming, having knowledge and conclusively, becoming destructive not by accepting reality of knowledge.
