There are many thoughts on the Future of Work

In the midst of the pandemic, with all the efforts exerted in managing through this time, it has been harder to focus on the future.

One of our goals at Lewis is to prepare students for a future that will require greater flexibility, creative-thinking, emotional intelligence and technical expertise.

We are constantly assessing articles and research like those that appear in SimpliLearn to help us plan our curriculum and experiences in anticipation of what lies ahead for our graduates.

Whatever your source, clear themes are emerging about the future skills and abilities that will be required of the next generation of workers regardless of profession. These include:

  • Comfort with data, analytics and predictive modeling
  • Strategic and creative thinking
  • Complex problem solving
  • Emotional intelligence
  • Flexibility and adaptability

The acceleration of the pace of change will also lead to ongoing education and true lifelong learners, as skill enhancement over a lifetime will become increasingly important.

While the challenges at the moment are many, we are excited to continue to develop and implement new approaches and experiences to ensure our graduates are ready for what comes next.
