Default The changing nature of work and Jamaica's place

in the 4th Industrial Revolution

Within the last decade it is believed that Jamaica, among other countries worldwide, has began to witness the changing nature of work. With aspects of the 4th Industrial Revolution having begun to manifest in workspaces, through heightened use of technologically driven operations, the country is encouraged to prepare to meet the demand for technology-based skills.

Simmons noted that currently, with Jamaica located in the lower quadrant or beginner stage of digital maturity, there is still much work for us to do even though commendations are given for the work which has already started, especially through some programmes now being offered in the tertiary institutions of the country. She highlighted advanced engineering, engineering and design, information technology applications, digitalisation, project life cycle management and robotics as some of the skills that will advance us and place us on a level playing field with other powerful countries such as Russia, China and Brazil.

We want to develop the skillsets of the people so that we can have higher value-added jobs coming to Jamaica. The education sector, the government, the private sector, the industry is aware of the change that is happening in the market place and knows that there is an opportunity for us as a country to move ourselves forward and to leapfrog right into the midst of the 4th Industrial Revolution, she closed in saying.
