HR practitioners and unions must address labour skill set issues and plan transition paths for careers disrupted by technology.
Viable job transitions can be identified once a declining job or field is matched to an in-demand group of jobs requiring similar skill-sets and knowledge.
High, medium and low similarity jobs
A close similarity between jobs increases the viability of change. Employers wont have to invest as much in training and workers will be less intimidated by the change.
The table below shows similar jobs for the following occupations:
- office clerks, general admin
- cooks, fast food
- electrical engineering technicians
- computer programmers
