Ratings on the future of the employment market demonstrate that social emotional skills are as important as technological knowledge 

In recent years, digital transformation has changed the way each person has experiences or performs activities. Making purchases by the app, having meetings by video conference or paying the bills by simply clicking on your cell phone are some of the daily possibilities thanks to the technological revolution. In the employment market, the proximity with new technologies is a differential, but, in accordance with the report Future of Jobs 2020, published by the World Economic Forum, in addition to technical skills, the future of work needs human skills, such as resilience, stress tolerance and flexibility. 

According to the publication, the Covid-19 pandemic accelerated even more the digital revolution and automation inside organizations and should transform jobs and skills until 2025. For 43% of businesses surveyed in the report, the reduction of the labor force is a result of technology integration. The conquest of new vacancies may depend on the development of human skills, such as critical thinking and analysis, resolution to problems, active learning and self-management. 

Connected with the appreciation of the development of human skills, the third edition of the Youth Summit in its program brings in its program guests to reflect on the potentials of the human being and the awakening of new talents. “Young people are highly connected with the almost unlimited multi-platform access to information, but these new generations are experiencing a moment with profound educational transformations in the employment market and in relationships. At the same time in which they enjoy the freedom with the connection they have a need to know more about their human essence,” explains the co-founder of the School of Creativity, Jean Sigel. The movement that the specialist integrates develops projects focused on cooperative education, creative economy and entrepreneurship.
