Work and Employment
The World of Work

The world of work is changing. Employers are facing the challenges of the global
marketplace, where competition is continuously increasing, and keeping a business economically viable requires constant manovering of resources.

Tomorrows workers need to be able to maneuver with equal, if not more agility than our predecessors. We need to apply our current learning only as long as is necessary, and then move to meet new challenges. Lifelong learning is the new mantra - the new mindset required for our nation to survive economically into the next decade.

We need to be informed - to keep in touch with the labour market and its constant
adjustments to the national and global economy.
