Automation continues to change the skills balance and will create demand for greater humanity and thinking skills.  Businesses need to develop digital dexterity in their workforce and provide opportunities for employees to transition into new roles. McKinsey suggests now is the time to double-down on purpose to attract and retain employees and customers for the future.
