Per Scholas Publishes First Report on the Future of Work in America
OnePoll conducted a random double-opt-in survey of 650 C-suite executives, 100 hiring managers, and 1,500 office workers, commissioned by Per Scholas. This is the first time Per Scholas has commissioned a survey of this magnitude. This survey revealed the extent to which every role will require a level of tech knowledge in the next 10 years.
Results showed 98% of C-suite executives feel tech skills are likely to be essential across every work sector in the next 10 years — with three-quarters of employees (75%) acutely aware that tech knowledge will be a must-have for them.
And while we may have a decade until the tech skills necessity infiltrates previously non-technological working roles, the data showed a majority of workers aren’t waiting to be caught cold — 57% are currently upskilling (acquiring new knowledge or competencies) either through their employer or individual means.
