Tips to shape future workforce by Accenture

To help leaders, especially those at the decision levels like the chief executive officers (CEOs) to shape the future workforce in the age of Artificial Intelligence (AI), Accenture has offered some tips on how to scale through, reports ITRealms.

Accenture Strategy  led by the group chief executive, Mark Knickrehm, made this tips known in its latest study, underscoring three of these tips to include reimagine of work, pivoting for the workforce and scaling up new skills.

He explained that to reimagine work entails reconfiguring work from the bottom up.

As said by Accenture, “Assess tasks, not jobs; then allocate tasks to machines and people, balancing the need to automate work and to elevate people’s capabilities. Nearly half (46 per cent) of business leaders agree that job descriptions are already obsolete; 29 percent say they have redesigned jobs extensively.”

In addition, to ‘Pivot the Workforce’ Accenture underlines areas that unlock new forms of value, stressing that going beyond process efficiencies and prepare the workforce to create new customer experiences.

“Fuel new growth models by reinvesting the savings derived from automation into the future workforce. Foster a new leadership DNA that underpins the mindset, acumen and agility required to seize longer-term, transformational opportunities,” Accenture advised.

On the third place, Accenture said, is the ‘Scale up new skilling’ which measures the workforce’s level of skills and willingness to learn to work with AI.

“Using digital platforms, target programmes at these different segments of the workforce and personalize them to improve new skills adoption. Accenture has developed a ‘new skilling’ framework based on a progression of skill level and using a suite of innovative digital learning methods that maximizes training investment at speed and scale,” Accenture advocated.
