The Forum therefore addressed questions such as: What are some plausible scenarios concerning the impact (both positive and negative) of further advances in digitisation on the world of work? What opportunities and challenges will digitisation pose to labour market and skills policies to ensure workers are well prepared to face the changing world of work?
The Forum took place at the OECD Conference Centre, in Paris, on January 14, 2016 from 10h30 to 18h00. The Forum facilitated a lively and free-flowing debate. Over 300 participants contributed to the discussion through interactive interfaces and they had the opportunity to engage with each other and speakers in an informal setting. The discussions from the Forum will inform national public policies and feed into the OECD’s work programme and the review of the OECD Jobs Strategy.
This event was part of a series of OECD initiatives to deepen our understanding of the Future of Work. Other activities and studies are planned in the context of engagement in global value chains, demographic change and the impact of different future-of-work scenarios on inequality and inclusion, job quality, family-work balance and social protection systems.
