World of Work: Brazil Case Study
October 19, 2018
The world of work in Brazil will continue to change over the coming decades with technology and aging creating added challenges and opportunities. The next president to be elected in October 2018 will have the difficult task to restore Brazil’s economy and lead the country into a more promising future. This huge undertaking includes preparing the Brazilian workforce for the future of work.
Home to the fifth largest workforce in the world, Brazil faces several workforce challenges: high informality and low productivity jobs, social inequalities, and youth unemployment. To achieve long-term security and sustainable growth, Brazil must raise its productivity and competitiveness in the global market. To do so, the next generation of workers must be appropriately trained to meet the changing demands of the labor market.
