A global standard for lifelong learning and worker engagement to support advanced manufacturing

The full benefits of the Fourth Industrial Revolution can be realized and broadly shared only if the workforce is provided with adequate opportunities for continuous training and is fully engaged in the processes of designing and implementing advanced manufacturing technologies and changing work systems. This will require new forms of collaboration from business, labour, education and government stakeholders.

In this paper, the World Economic Forum establishes six guiding principles to support the creation of international standards for lifelong learning and worker engagement in advanced manufacturing. The examples provide evidence of how some of these stakeholders are already working to manage the transformations in technology and work in this integrated fashion.
