Issue #21 — Happy 1st Advent 🕯

Hi ,

I guess you are also getting more and more into Christmas feelings like me 😍 ⛄️.

Before sharing more of this newsletter’s content I would like to say rest in peace Diego Maradona, who died last Wednesday 25th of November. A football player from Argentina who is a role model to many people, not only in football. Thank you Diego for the passion you shared with us and the sport football 🙏 .

In this newsletter, we will share with you things like new deals, one historic employee, Covid-19 plans and TikTok.

10 job skills of tomorrow


Greater adoption of technology will mean in-demand skills across jobs change over the next five years, and skills gaps will continue to be high.

For those workers who stay in their roles, the share of core skills that will change by 2025 is 40%, and 50% of all employees will need reskilling (up 4%).

Critical thinking and problem-solving top the list of skills that employers believe will grow in prominence in the next five years. These have been consistent since the first report in 2016.

But newly emerging this year are skills in self-management such as active learning, resilience, stress tolerance and flexibility.
