Digitalization and Its Impact on the National Labour Market and Education System. Results of a Moderated Discussion
Purpose: The main purpose of the article is to justify the need for interdisciplinary professional training of employees for challenges related to the growing importance of dynamically developing digitalization, which is closely related to the development of civilization. Design/methodology/approach: The theses presented in the article have been verified using: literature review, critical literature analysis, document research and comparative analysis. Findings: Based on the content of this article, a future emerges in which man, industry and the surrounding reality will be shaped by digitalization developing with hitherto unknown dynamics. This phenomenon may lead to disappearance of world characteristic for industrial age and the transition to a new era determined by technologies based on data flow and its analysis. In digitalized economies, knowledge that is exemplified by a knowledge society that creates innovative solutions has become a key capital resource. It seems that digitalization in the context of economies' competitiveness will determine the need to raise the level of education and competences and to create and control new knowledge. Originality/value: The article enriches knowledge and develops a discussion in the area of dynamically developing digitalization. Thanks to the knowledge presented in the article, it can be concluded that the decisive role in creating the development of a labour market and education can be overcome by breaking social and professional barriers to digitalization processes - which may favour the social dimension of individuals and strengthen the sense of fullness in human life.(original abstract)
