Supply Chain sector has added an average of 10,721 news jobs per year and is expected to see similar growth in future, potentially adding over 50,700 jobs between 2016 and 2021.
Current Wind of Change…
We are in the midst of the fourth industrial revolution - a Digital Revolution, which is evolving at an exponential rate. These developments are magnified by advances in artificial intelligence, drones, autonomous vehicles, robotics, the internet of things, blockchain, additive manufacturing, mixed reality tech, and renewable energy.
A survey conducted by Canadian Supply Chain Sector Council highlighted that Supply Chain will be highly impacted by technology within the next 3 to 5 years. This means that there is an imminent need for physical supply chain and labour force to adopt digital technologies and to be re-trained and re-skilled to keep up with this rapid change.
Watch this video by Patrick Etokudo, SCMP, Director SCM Excellence, Enbridge talking about how Technology will change the skills required for future Supply Chain labour force.
