EGFSN Annual Activity Statement 2018.pdf (size 342.3 KB

2018 was an important year to consider future-proofing the economy and forecasting the skills required in light of the changing global landscape. The EGFSN’s Addressing the Skills Needs Arising from the Potential Trade Implications of Brexit examined whether Irish based enterprises are adequately equipped to face these challenges. Its recommendations are being pursued through a Department of Business, Enterprise and Innovation (DBEI) chaired Brexit Skills Implementation Oversight Group.  Future Jobs Ireland is an integral component of the Government’s over-arching plan for the future of the Irish economy. A central tenet of its Enhancing Skills and Developing and Attracting Talent pillar is the principle of lifelong learning and supporting upskilling of our workers. The EGFSN is continuing to provide analysis to inform the implementation of the plan’s recommendations to improve managerial capacity, to enhance and maintain productivity and to prepare for technological disruption.
