Panel Discussion - Human Capital and Diversity

Downstream industry is faced with unprecedented demands on its human capital due to high percentage of ageing workforce, low in-take of fresh workforce, technology disruptions, cultural & skill diversity, multiple roles, multi-tasking, aggressive deadlines and handling uncertainties. It is vital to maintain a happy state of mind to ensure maximum productivity with minimal health impacts. According to World Economic Forum’s “The Jobs Reset Summit” held on 20-23 Oct 2020, 50% of all employees will need reskilling by 2025, as adoption of technology increases. Critical thinking and problem-solving top the list of skills employers believe will grow in prominence in the next five years. Newly emerging this year are skills in self-management such as active learning, resilience, stress tolerance and flexibility. Soft skills are the new hard skills of the future workforce. This panel will dwell on the above altered future of skill requirements for the workforce – now and for the foreseeable future.
