Theme: Breaking Barriers
We are living in an ever evolving and rapidly changing working environment. However, with all these changes, there will always be barriers of entry for learning new skills or getting involved in new ideas.The Nelson Mandela Bay is one of the country’s automotive hubs. Automation allows us to produce more from factories, but we are also losing jobs.
What then is the future of work in a wireless world?
Social media platforms are frequently filled with images of young graduates seeking employment, in a working environment that requires experienced candidates. How does one gain experience, when that very requirement is a barrier? “Breaking Barriers” is a platform where we unpack and address the Catch22 of the working environment in South Africa.
