The world of work is changing. Digitalisation, globalisation, population ageing and the transition to a low-carbon economy are affecting the jobs available and the skills required to perform them. At the Skills Team of the OECD Directorate for Employment, Labour and Social Affairs (ELS) we develop data, tools and carry out analysis and implementation support to help individuals, firms and countries get ready for the jobs of the future. We work on three big areas: (1) Adult learning, helping countries improve their adult learning systems; (2) Changing skills needs, providing information on future skills evolutions and requirements; and (3) PIAAC, measuring the actual skills of adults. In the links below you will find more information on our work in each of these areas.
