The future of work continues to change at a rapid pace. According to Mercer’s recent Thriving in an Age of Disruption research:

  • 35% of today’s skills won’t be relevant in three years.
  • 45% of the work people do today could be replaced by automation.
  • 93% of organizations are planning to redesign their structure in the next 2 years.

Keeping up-to-date on pay levels for these new and emerging jobs is more important than ever. The Canada Mercer New and Fast Moving Jobs Survey is designed to help you keep up with this constantly changing environment.
