Technology adoption will remain a key driver of business transformation in the next five years. According to the World Economic Forum’s The Future of Jobs Report 2023, over 85% of organizations surveyed identify increased adoption of new and frontier technologies and broadening digital access as the trends most likely to drive transformation in their organization. 

Exploring how jobs and skills will evolve over the coming years, the report estimates that five professions will expand rapidly over the next years as automation and energy transition transform the way we work. They are:
