The young students in schools today will work in professions that for the most part do not yet exist, performing tasks that have yet to be defined and will need to learn basic knowledge that we don’t even know that we don’t know. Consequently, we have no choice, but to redefine the knowledge and skills that schools provide in the formative years, to move away from learning for the sake of knowing, in favor of teaching how to learn in order to learn and transform.
That is also true for vocational and higher education. As knowledge is continuously being revised and new tools are constantly emerging, we are eroding the basis of our professional knowledge. As a result, professions are changing, some disappearing while others are emerging. We can no longer assume that what we learn through our 20’s will define our professional identity and serve us for a lifetime employment.
We will need to learn to learn, un-learn and re-learn throughout our lives. And for that, we must redefine education.
The changing world of work is challenging much of the social infrastructure we have created over the last few centuries to protect employees, workers, work. The need to understand how the new world of work should shape public policy and legislation is now even more urgent as courts are dealing with the new ecosystem based on old labor laws.
Many of the world labor laws and public policies are struggling to reconcile between what was and what is emerging. It is probably time we team up to ask the right questions and help shape the world of work in a way that would support careers, organizations as well as society.
In the public sphere, in government ministries and in the many public bodies working with the government, we are busy with the need to identify and act to create infrastructure tailored to the new world of work.
In many municipalities, we are busy adapting the system and services to the changing world in order to produce urban infrastructure that will make the city a competitive advantage for the people who live and work there.
In the social and third sectors, we see a great deal of work being done to promote and nurture populations and sectors and the infrastructure required for success in the New World.

We were fortunate to have Nirit present to our Australian delegation of senior executives. Nirit was an insightful and skilled presenter and provided valuable ideas for our group to consider in the Australian context.
Nirit effectively contextualizes the Israeli Human Capital experience. Her expertise is based on decades of industry experience, and she challenged our group of HR leaders to re-imagine what work could look like in South Africa.
