INCoDe.2030 announces results of the “Study for Employability (non-ICT) in the Future”

INCoDe.2030 publishes the results of the “Study for (non-ICT) Employability in the Future”, which made it possible to look at non-ICT employment in Portugal and identify the demands of different professional profiles, in a 3 to 6 year horizon.

In this study, carried out by INCoDe.2030 in collaboration with PwC Portugal and McKinsey & Company, 49 priority professions were identified and a reference framework of 22 digital skills for employment was developed. Digital training courses were also developed for each profession, with diagnostic tests for placement in a training journey.

“In an increasingly digitized society, where professions are increasingly based on digital instruments, it is especially important to ensure that male and female workers have the skills to guarantee the exercise of their profession. With this study, INCoDe.2030 hopes to contribute to the goal of helping companies and employees to overcome the challenges posed by the digital transition”, emphasizes Luisa Ribeiro Lopes, General Coordinator of INCoDe.2030.

According to the OECD, 4 out of 10 new jobs will be “High Digital Intensity” (OECD, July 2020). For this reason, it is expected that the increase in earnings and productivity levers, translated into economic growth, will be generalized to all professions. As the evolution of the digital environment is one of the main drivers of profound changes in the organization of work, additional pressure is placed on professions that are not specialized in digital (non-ICT), where, in order to convert the inherent challenges, an upskilling effort and reskilling of professionals.

Within the scope of this study, several materials are available that aim to identify the training and digital training needs of these professionals, explained through a methodological guide.
