5 reports that caught our eye the week of Dec. 20, 2020

CareerWise is always on the lookout for the latest reports related to career development. Here are five reports that we found interesting this week:

The Next Wave: Automation and Canada’s Labour Market (C.D. Howe Institute)

This report assesses the likely impact of technological automation on Canada’s labour market and compares these results to past predictions. It finds a lower proportion of employment at high risk of automation (about 22%) than most previous estimates. However, key demographic groups, like Black and Indigenous individuals, are more susceptible to job loss depending on their occupations.

Loading: The Future of Work (LMIC)

This report defines and discusses key concepts in this labour market transformation and the opportunities and challenges for creating a resilient and inclusive economy. It also looks at key regulatory considerations for the gig economy.

How schools can better prepare young people for working life in the era of COVID-19 (OECD)

The focus of this working paper is on how secondary schools can optimize young people’s preparation for adult employment at a time of extreme labour market turbulence. By reviewing academic analysis of national longitudinal datasets, it is possible to identify indicators of comparative adult success.

Labour Demand Trends During the COVID-19 Pandemic (Diversity Institute)

This report is based on an analysis of online job postings in the pre-pandemic and pandemic periods. It discusses both changes in total job postings and changes in job postings across geography, occupations, skills and sectors

Life Satisfaction in Canada Before and During the COVID-19 Pandemic (Statistics Canada)

From 2018 to June 2020, average life satisfaction in Canada declined to the lowest level seen over the 2003-to-2020 period. In June 2020, 40% of Canadians rated their life satisfaction as 8 or above on the 10-point scale, down from 72% in 2018. This decline in life satisfaction was accompanied by a significant increase in the inequality of its distribution.
