After decades of growing income inequality, job loss due to technologically-driven advances, and rising social conflict, the global pandemic of 2020 and 2021 has pushed economic systems into decline, disrupted labor markets, and fully revealed our failed social contracts between employers and employees.
Today’s advancing technological innovation, which defines the Fourth Industrial Revolution, can be leveraged to reskill and upskill individuals orient today’s workers towards the future of work. At the younger end of the workforce spectrum, individuals increasingly expect to be able to vary their career paths and at the same time continuously upgrade their skills in the use of new technologies. However, the efforts to support those affected by the current crisis lag behind the speed of disruption.
Employers claim that the need for skilled talent is so urgent that the conventional education system cannot keep up with demand. The Reskilling Revolution program launched by the World Economic Forum in January 2020 estimated that one billion people need to be provided with better education, new skills, and better work by 2030. It is now urgent to enact what the WEF calls the Global Reset and find solutions to the evident talent mismatch experienced between individuals and corporations in the 4IR era. It is our hope as scholars and academics that leaders and employees collaborate to shape a more just, economically and socially, global labor market
This Special Issue of Administrative Sciences aims to refine a focus on how both innovative leaders and empowered employees can show us the way to a more equitable future of work across developed and developing economies.
