Pradhan calls for collective introspection on the changing nature of job profiles
Union Minister of Petroleum & Natural Gas and Skill Development & Entrepreneurship, Dharmendra Pradhan has called for a collective introspection on the changing nature of job profiles and urged public policy makers to focus on the nature of future jobs.
Inaugurating the 11th Global Skills Summit, 2018, organized by FICCI and the Ministry of Skill Development & Entrepreneurship, Pradhan said the belief that technology and innovation were squeezing the job space was a myth.
He said “while some jobs were being squeezed, a multi-fold increase was being witnessed in many other sectors due to technological innovation.”
Internet is changing the character of the workplace at a frenetic pace, and therefore, policy shapers need to astutely comprehend the jobs scenario, he added.
