Abstract: The combination of many economical, ecological, technological, and societal factors and the enabling of technological innovations will result in a major shift in the future of workforce which is here to stay beyond the pandemic. To better address these changes will require educating and influencing global industries, academia, and governments through recommendations to better adjust. This is the goal of this effort! IEEE Industry Engagement organized 10 sponsored panels around the world to bring together industry, academia, government, and professional organizations leaders to collectively explore potential technologies and long-term visions of the future workforce. We addressed current and future-looking fifteen factors and fifteen technologies. We discussed how they can be applied towards future global workforce planning. In this presentation we will offer some intermediate results that will eventually comprise a comprehensive report made available globally.
