Today, enterprises want to exploit the benefits of the fourth industrial revolution along with emerging technologies to significantly increase their prospects of growth, stability and security. With this, the future of work will become unpredictable and technology will continue to transform the role humans play in the workforce, creating a constant need to adapt and upskill. According to LinkedIn, in 2020, India will witness a surge in the demand for professionals skilled in emerging technologies such as blockchain, AI and RPA, making it imperative to prepare a workforce ready for these evolutionary job roles. With the same goal, UiPath aims to upskill students at the collegiate level and reskill people to fully harness the available growth opportunities in India.

“The rapidly growing automation ecosystem has significantly amplified the need to expedite the pace of readying a workforce for the future of automation. In India, with the emerging youth population, it is imperative to build a future-ready workforce to support the fourth industrial revolution. In line with the Government’s Skill India and Digital India mission, along with the World Economic Forum’s prediction of reskilling half the workers in the country by 2022, we at UiPath, are providing learning opportunities at the collegiate level for students to start early and build an acumen for technology to further the vision of an automated India,” said Manish Bharti, President, UiPath, India & SAARC.
