Technology, changing demographics, and disruptive events like the COVID-19 pandemic are a few of the forces changing the way Canadians work and the skills they need to thrive. These changes are often unpredictable and still not fully understood.

Zabeen Hirji, Executive Advisor, Future of Work at Deloitte Canada, insists, however, that employers and employees can work together, along with leaders in government and education, to build the learning opportunities that will help the workforce prepare for long-term changes and respond to immediate disruptions.

Talking with Magnet, Hirji shared some of her insights on the conversations leaders and workers need to have, and how those conversations can give way to the flexible and ongoing learning workers need in a constantly changing labour landscape.
