  • Disruption Roadmap

     Which of our jobs are most exposed to machine learning and other forms of automation?

     Which of our jobs are most suitable for remote work?

  • Skills Evaluation

     Are we getting better at attracting and retaining people with in-demand skills?

  • Competitive Intelligence

     Do we have higher or lower churn than our competitors in key talent areas?

  • Reskilling and Upskilling

     Which of our people can be most easily retrained for the jobs of the future?

Why now?

Technology trends like AI, process automation, robotics, and remote work are reshaping workforces in every industry. COVID and intense global competition are only accelerating these changes. The jobs in demand, and the skills needed to do those jobs, are changing more quickly than ever before. 

Companies need better tools to anticipate and plan for these changes.

  • $240T

    The sum of American workers’ skills, experience, education, and knowhow—is likely around $240 trillion. Your people really are your most valuable asset, but our research finds that most companies have large mismatches: many people could be doing jobs that are better suited to their skills.

  • 33%

    According to our estimates, over $3 trillion of the annual U.S. wage bill, 33% of the total, is exposed to machine learning-driven disruption. Companies that get a head start redesigning their business processes will unlock massive productivity gains.

  • +15%

    We developed a job-level work from home (WFH) index, and found that it predicted company performance during COVID. Companies with a high WFH index score saw 15% higher incomes during the pandemic, compared to those with a low pre-COVID score. High-scoring companies also experienced higher sales and better stock market performance.
