Addressing the challenges posed by digitalisation and an ageing workforce
A large pool of well-educated talent has been key to Switzerland’s success in recent decades. A relatively free and efficient labour market, a quality education system and Switzerland's openness to international talent have been the most important building blocks in this regard. However, Switzerland’s top position is at risk. Faced with accelerating digital transformation and an ageing population, government and businesses need to take action to make sure that Switzerland tackles a looming labour shortage and remains a leader in attracting, educating and retaining talent. Policymakers need to update the education system and labour market regulation and businesses need to rethink their workforce strategy and tap into new talent pools.
Here are what policymakers and businesses need to do to help Switzerland power up its workforce strategy and remain innovative, attractive and inclusive now and in the future.
