IORMA Webinar : The Future Job Landscape

11 February 2021

There is no dispute that every sector will be affected by disruptive technologies and the changes forced on everyone in recent months by Lockdowns.

It is likely to take time for jobs recently displaced to be created elsewhere fast enough to prevent long term unemployment.

This disruption calls for radical solutions.  IORMA has invited experts who have suggested ways forward and have designed work change programmes.
