Critically, one of the more impact statements of Jon’s presentation, which we truly support, is the importance of lifetime learning. What’s that? Well, given we’re living longer, working longer, staving off or accessing cures for disease more efficiently, we as a society (and a workforce) need to adopt the learning-for-life philosophy. No one has the luxury of a set-and-forget career or work-life any more, and the learning we undertake needs to be absolutely focused on our skills, not on our job.
By doing this, we’ll be able to consistently adapt to a changing world, we’ll be less focused on having a ‘job’ - the obvious risk being, that job may disappear - and we’ll be maintaining our position in the workplace of the future.
