Upcoming Alumni Webcast - Automation and the Future of Work
December 13, 2017
11:00 a.m. – 12:15 p.m. EST / 5:00 – 6:15 p.m. CET / 9:30 – 10:45 p.m. IST
Powerful new forms of automation technologies, including artificial intelligence and robotics, can generate significant benefits for individuals, businesses, and societies, lifting productivity and economic growth. They can also enhance and improve occupations by replacing tedious and dangerous tasks – but what will their impact be on occupations, skills, and wages?

McKinsey Global Institute's (MGI) forthcoming report, “Jobs Lost, Jobs Gained: Workforce transitions in a time of automation,” models scenarios for the impact of these technologies on labor through 2030, drawing on underlying analyses of nearly 50 countries that comprise almost 90 percent of global GDP. While the report finds that many new jobs are likely to be created to offset the displacement caused by automation, workers around the world will nonetheless face massive transitions in terms of their occupations, work activities, required skills, and possibly wages.

The extent to which new technologies will displace workers will vary widely depending on the pace of technological development and adoption, how business, policy makers, and workers respond, as well as workforce dynamics (aging populations, education, wage rates, etc.) and relative development of individual countries. Join Partners Susan Lund (Washington, D.C.) and Michael Chui (San Francisco) as they discuss the implications of this new research and what the future of work could look like.
