How jobs are changing

What is dyslexia?

Dyslexia influences at least 1 in 10 people and is a genetic difference in an individual’s ability to learn and process information. As a result, dyslexic individuals have differing abilities, with strengths in creative, problem-solving and communication skills and challenges with spelling, reading and memorising facts. Generally, a dyslexic cognitive profile will be uneven when compared to a neurotypical cognitive profile. This means that dyslexic individuals really do think differently. There are specific skills that organisations can tap into from dyslexia as part of changes to jobs and tasks.

Changes to skills

The World Economic Forum’s Future of Jobs report, demonstrates how this change of skills, abilities and tasks, called competencies, is shifting as a result of automation, and more widely, labour force transformations to 2022. The findings indicate across the board:

Processing, manual, and transaction-type competencies such as coordination and time management, management of financial, material resources and reading, writing, math and active listening, are declining.

Creative, problem-solving, and social-type competencies such as analytical thinking and innovation, active learning and learning strategies, and creativity and initiative, are trending.
