The Future of Work: Opportunities and Challenges for Jobs Earnings and Inequality

JVI is gradually resuming classroom delivery. This course is scheduled to take place at JVI, but may have to be delivered virtually in case safe travel to and in-person training in Vienna will not be possible. The decision to offer virtual instead of onsite training, or a combination of the two (hybrid), will be made within 5 weeks of the course start date.​


TARGET GROUP | Government Officials from ministries of economics, finance, and la-bor/social protection.


DESCRIPTION | The world of work is currently undergoing significant changes. New tech-nologies, demographic shifts, a slowdown in globalization and political uncertainty cre-ate substantial pressure on workers and firms. Changes in tasks and occupations threat-en traditional career paths, creating job risks and putting pressure on wages. At the same time, new activities emerge that require new skill sets, geographical mobility and flexible work arrangements. Policy makers see themselves confronted with new and in-creasingly diverse demands for protection and support. This one-week course will offer several country case studies to illustrate the diverse nature of challenges and opportuni-ties that will shape the Future of Work. Together with our experts, course participants will get a better understanding of these dynamics and the tools and instruments to measure and evaluate the changes to come. The course will also offer a menu of policy choices across a range of domains, including structural, labour market, social protection and macro-economic policies that can help to mitigate and support the transition to fos-ter inclusive growth and decent work.
