There have been extraordinary changes in jobs and careers in recent years driven by rapid technological change and globalization of the economy. These changes have resulted in fundamental transformations in the skills needed to thrive in the workplace; the pace of change in skill requirements and tasks performed on jobs; how tasks are configured into jobs; how, where, when and by whom work is accomplished; and in how and through what organizational contexts services are procured. Put simply, these changes have profoundly affected careers throughout the world, with frequent job transitions and tens of millions of gig workers.
In this session, Drs. Gary Carter and Jerry Hedge, editors of the forthcoming book Career Pathways: From School to Retirement (Hedge & Carter, Oxford University Press) will discuss the implications of these changes for how individuals manage their careers and how organizations manage the development and deployment of their workforces. Their presentation will include a perspective on how a career pathways approach can help both individuals and organizations thrive in today’s world.
