In a digitalized, decarbonized world, mining and metals companies will need radically new skillsets to succeed. But these highly sought-after skills will likely be in short supply. To attract and retain an effective future workforce, the industries would need new talent sourcing strategies and different employee value propositions.
To address this issue, the World Economic Forum’s Mining and Metals Future of Work Taskforce has conducted a Global Talent Innovation Initiative. Working with future talent, industry stakeholders and partners—and using innovation hubs and the SkyHive Quantum Labor Analytics Platform—the initiative has taken a deep dive into the future of mining and metals talent.
The result is a comprehensive report, based on extensive research and modelling, that defines the skills the industries will need and assesses where and how this talent will be sourced.
