Nearly a third of the workers in the formal economy in Latin America spend much of their time on routine tasks, and with it many jobs will be transformed, and workers will need to develop new skills.
In Latin America, the labor market could be affected by the adoption of new technologies and the use of data from this digitization process, either through automation or the demand for new job profiles. Only about 20% of Latin American workers have jobs that demand high-level skills, compared to more than 40% in the European Union and the United States. This scenario requires an action aimed at generating new capacities and skills in the Latin American workforce, which allows their incorporation and adaptation to the new economy.
The Data Observatory, due to its nature of public-private-academic alliance, promotes the development and transformation of talents in the area of data acience, data analytics and data democratization through the organization of seminars, training courses and other tools that allow these capabilities to be incorporated into the economy.
