“Rapid demographic change, technological progress, digitalisation and globalisation are creating many opportunities, but concerns are growing about people’s ability to cope with the rapid changes in work and society. This often fuels anxiety and uncertainty about the future. We need to help governments develop forward-looking skills, labour, health and social policies that help people seize opportunities while enabling them to face the challenges of a more dynamic and competitive environment.”

Stefano Scarpetta, Director of Employment, Labour and Social Affairs.
