Seminar on digitalisation of the labour market

The Czech Ministry of Labour and Social Affair will be organising a seminar in Prague to allow representatives from international organisations and thematic experts to share views on measures that will present the growing polarisation of work due to the process of digitalisation and policy responses in the areas of life-long learning, tax and insurance systems and occupational health and safety.

As the labour markets undergo structural changes due to the advancements of digitalisation and technology, there is a worry that a significant number of jobs will be replaced by robots.  Some predictions suggest that nearly half of the human workforce could be replaced by computerised equipment in the next 20 years, while other estimations forecast that only 10% of jobs will be affected by digitalisation.

The seminar will be attended by 12 European countries.
