Experts estimate that Russia will face a number of challenges within the next 5–10 years which will significantly change the requirements placed on human capital — the working population, along with its qualifications, skills and professions. How will the role of young people in the digital economy change and what can be done now? What should employers look out for when hiring young people? How can they build teams that are capable of working effectively in this new reality? Trends that are having the greatest impact on the business environment:
The digitalization of the economy The digital economy has been recognized as a key economic development tool in Russia and worldwide. Digitalization could make over 6 million jobs in Russia redundant and cause changes to the requirements and structure of a further 20 million.
The changing demographic profile of the population It is anticipated that the number of young people, who are among the highest contributors to society, will decreased by 29%, and that the proportion of ‘older’ people will grow by 32% (Rosstat)
The growth of global competition for human capital and, as a result, an outflow of professionals away from Russia.
