New world, new skills

Everyone should be able to live, learn, work and participate in the digital world

We are living through an era which is easily one of the most complex for the workforce, with changes occurring more rapidly than at any other time in history.

As digitalisation reshapes the landscape, and technological advancements mean some jobs are phased out while others are created, we face a challenge:

How can we stay competitive and relevant?

At PwC, we believe the answer is lifelong upskilling. Over the next four years, we’re investing $3bn on a global campaign to help our people learn new skills and to develop technologies to support our clients.

And beyond the firm, we’re working with external agencies and decision-makers to ensure that no-one is left behind. Our success depends on future investments and policies bringing everyone together on this journey.

Over the next few months, we’ll explore this topic more and bring you a range of interviews, videos and blogs. And watch this space for details on how you can get involved by joining our event during Northern Ireland's influential tech conference Digital DNA 2020, which we're proudly sponsoring for the third year. 

In this short documentary, academics, NGOs, policymakers and business leaders explain why upskilling for a digital world has become a priority for society, organisations and governments.
