The ‘future of work’ was already a major topic before the pandemic, with automation and technology rapidly changing the jobs market. That pace of change is now rising fast, according to the World Economic Forum.

“The number of working hours that have been lost due to workplace closures: that’s going to be the equivalent of 345 million jobs being lost,” says Saadia Zahidi from the World Economic Forum (WEF).

345 million jobs — it’s an almost incomprehensibly large number, but it’s one of several striking statistics revealed this week at ‘The Jobs Reset Summit 2020’, a four-day online event about the future of work and the global labor market.
