John Kamensky, a senior fellow with the IBM Center for the Business of Government, wrote in a Nextgov article published Friday that the federal workforce should undergo retraining as several factors shape the future of work.

Kamensky mentioned some of the forces that could change how work will be carried out in the future that were cited in an article published in Harvard Business Review.

Those are the rising demand for cybersecurity and other technical skills, different work models, changing employee expectations and technological changes.

The authors of the article listed measures agency leaders can implement to prepare employees for the future of work and one is the creation of a learning culture through the development of a continuous learning model, Kamensky wrote.

Agencies should engage employees in the transition; enable personnel to retrain for new jobs; advance collaboration to further build up the talent pool; and quickly respond to shifts in the environment.
