Skills of the Future: 10 Skills You’ll Need to Thrive in 2020

Wazzup Pilipinas!

Now, more than ever, industries are shifting even more rapidly than during previous decades. The taxi driver of today may not be able to have a job in tomorrow’s economy when transportation becomes so advanced that self-driving cars can rely on GPS and camera sensors alone to get passengers from point A to point B.

That brings us to the question: what skills of the future should a professional start learning today to secure a career in 2020 and beyond?

Nontechnical Skills for a Technological Future

Surprising as it may be, but experts predict that the most in-demand skills in the next few years are soft skills such as creativity, people management, and having sound judgment and decision-making. That’s because more and more jobs may be taken over by robots, but those that require creativity and emotional intelligence still need a human touch.

For HR managers, this may mean giving more consideration to people who may have weak technical skills on the surface but have the potential to grow and master the skills needed to become more successful in the future workplace.

Being aware of the skills that may not be as crucial at present can allow you to recruit people that can adapt to shifts in the industry, hence increasing retention and improving the growth of your organization.
