Future of work and how disruptive technologies could = 5.1m jobs lost in 2015-2020

Automation and digitisation of white collar workers processes and systems are going to wreak havoc in the careers of many professional workers including corporate treasury staff. 

Based on data spanning 15 economies and 65% of the world’s total workforce, The World Economic Forum’s 2016 Future of Jobs Report identified that current trends could lead to a net employment impact of more than 5.1 million jobs lost to disruptive labour market changes over the period 2015–2020. Also few, if any, corporate treasury departments are predicting an expansion of their staffing numbers, most have accepted the mantra of “do more with less”. 

Not only this, the mergers of companies, which is not going away, means that the number of corporate treasury jobs are in long term decline.  

So, what do you do about it? Go to a roundtable? Go to a seminar?

CTMfile take: Importantly HPC, who has been a leader for many years in the growing number of consultancies and companies helping workers threatened by this tsunami in the professional employment market, describe what they do as: - High Performance Coaching . Sadly the reality is that ’How to survive and thrive’ might be a more appropriate description of what they teach. Professional careers in corporate treasury are increasingly about survival.
