Each week, CERIC is on the lookout for the latest reports related to career development. Here are four that we found interesting this week:

World Development Report 2019: The Changing Nature of Work (World Bank)

This report studies how the nature of work is changing as a result of advances in technology. Fears that robots will take away jobs from people have dominated the discussion over the future of work, but the World Development Report 2019 finds that, on balance, this appears to be unfounded.

Investing in Refugee Talent: Lessons Learned in Labour Market Integration (Hire Immigrants, Cities of Migration and BertelsmannStiftung)

This report shares 13 international best practices in refugee labour market integration, which all represent the pivotal role of employment in the integration of refugees and the private sector as a key stakeholder in receiving communities.

Advantage women: how an automated future could play to women’s strengths (RBC)

This report suggests that women may be better positioned than men for the jobs of the future. This view is supported by evidence that generalist, digital and social skills — the skills that women already use to a greater extent — will be in high demand.

2019 Ontario Labour Market Guide (Ontario Labour Market Report)

The labour market has changed radically and an increasing skills and labour shortage is prompting many Ontario employers to transform the very nature of work. This report, which is available for purchase, includes new data on communities, occupations and industries.
