Why Read This Report

Technology is changing the way we work; for some, it threatens their ability to work at all. There are 104.8 million workers in sectors that will lose more jobs than they will gain in the future dislocation — and the 53% of US adult workers without a four-year college degree are most at risk. However, they don't have to be. Our data shows they are as ready, optimistic, and capable of change as their college-educated peers, but you must invest in their potential. Read this report to learn what they need and why you should invest in and engage them now to benefit in the future.
