Lifelong learning increases employment

In order to retain and increase employability, 86% of the global respondents say that they need to keep learning, according to the latest Randstad Workmonitor.

The Workmonitor, which covers 33 countries around the world, showed that overall, on average, the percentages of those who consider lifelong learning essential reach between 80% and 95% with the highest figure in Mexico (97%) and the lowest in Sweden at 39%.

“These results are really staggering,” Ola Eriksson, Head of Marketing Randstad Sweden, said. “Unemployment in Sweden is not that low. So, my best guess would be that people might underestimate that the world is changing and consequently different skills are needed.”
