Critical capabilities for the future

The future of work is you 

In the digital future, value lies in harnessing what makes us human. As automation increases and global competition grows ever more intense, research proves that core employability capabilities or ‘soft skills’—like communication, problem solving and digital literacy—will provide the competitive advantage needed to adapt and thrive.

"Soft skill-intensive occupations will account for two-thirds of all jobs by 2030 … But there appears to be a gap between demand and supply". 
Deloitte Access Economics, Soft skills for business success, p. 1.
