Future of Work: A Policy Blueprint

October 25, 2018

This Fall, TAO will be creating a Policy Blueprint focused on the Future of Work.

Automation will have profound impacts on traditional occupation categories as well as certain tech occupations.  This policy blueprint will use a combination of focus groups and survey data to identify the drivers of technological change to help inform policy makers and education partners as they seek to make investments and develop policies that position Oregon’s students and workforce for future success.  

Companies in our region have the opportunity to contribute by providing input on the future of work and the effects of automation on the tech industry.  Companies can also contribute financially to elevate their brand on this topic and among elected officials as part of this legislative handbook.

This Policy Blueprint will be used to highlight trends in tech industry occupation categories, relevant education and training programs and resources available in the region, and perspectives from local tech companies regarding the key drivers of technological change.

Components will include:

  • Executive Summary
  • Key Findings of Survey Results and Focus Groups from Tech Industry Leaders
  • Diversity and Inclusion Considerations & Recommendations
  • Summary of Avaialble Education Partner Programs
  • Data Narratives Highlighting Areas of Growth, Contraction and Highlight Key Drivers of Technological Change

Data Collection will begin the week of January 7th with initial findings shared mid-February.  The full Blueprint will be available in late February.
