The recent financial crisis brought high levels of unemployment, which has concealed the fact that in 2025 many economies will experience a labor shortage. Currently, the rise of Internet-facilitated employment has caused organizations and workers to question how relevant traditional full-time workers will be in the future. Countries are already implementing policies to address anticipated talent shortages, particularly for in-demand occupations.

The analyst briefing will explore the labor market in 2025. Specifically, it will consider how many social, political and economic trends emerging will influence tomorrow's global labor force and the values future workers will hold. Furthermore, how will an increasingly globalized and technologically sophisticated world continue to impact the global labor supply? Frost & Sullivan experts will elaborate on what these emerging employment models are and how they believe the models will evolve. 

"The Future Labor Force" is the first chapter in a three-part series on the future of work. Subsequent chapters will discuss the future place of work and the future of workplace technology.

Attend this webinar to discover:

  • The impact of projected demographic shifts, which include millennials constituting the bulk of 2025's labor force and rapidly aging societies
  • The need for skills preparation, as economies compete for workers in the industries of tomorrow
  • The emergence of new employment models, as connectivity trends and the Internet-based economy grow
  • The influence of international organizations on future labor goals
  • Emerging trends in labor migration

The key audience for this briefing is HR specialists, strategy specialists, and individuals interested in future trends of the labor force.

What our thought leaders are saying:

"Companies need to implement strategies now to help address future talent challenges. Greater automation implementation and technological advancements will help ease projected labor shortages and increase labor productivity; however these technologies will be net creators and will not destroy job opportunities. Therefore, it is important to consider the human factor", said Frost & Sullivan Senior Research Analyst Jillian Walker. "By 2025, millennials will form over 48 percent of the global labor force. While millennial values vary by region, in general, their influence will alter future workplace policies. Companies who anticipate these value shifts now will be better prepared to retain future talent. Further, in many economies women earn more degrees than men, but their labor participation rates are still well below those of their male counterparts, reducing GDP potentials. Recruiting and mentoring female graduates will go a long way in curbing an anticipated global talent crunch."
