DLSU-AKI Policy Brief, Volume VII, No. 11: Database Formation of Labor Profiles in Upskilling and Reskilling Programs to Prepare the Philippine Labor Force for the 4IR

The policy focuses on data management of opportunities for upskilling/reskilling and the profile management of individual laborers’ professional information to effectively integrate the influence of technology on day-to-day life (Schwab, 2016). Laborers that register onto the platform will be matched with programs that can help them meet demands that emerged due to the evolution of their job description. The registration is done to make workers capable of integrating new technologies of the Fourth Industrial Revolution (4IR) into their workflow. Reskilling and upskilling can evolve operators of the past into “smart operators” that can work with augmented reality, virtual reality, and data analytics, allowing them to keep up with demands (Romero et al., 2016). Digitalizing operations in a socially sustainable manner means optimizing workflows with technology while equipping laborers with the skills to meet evolving job descriptions. The 4IR-based needs of the labor market will be added to the database and will be perpetually updated to ensure that the education system can adjust to the ever-changing labor landscapes. A similar program is “LinkedIn Learning,” which keeps people updated with the developments in their industries while adding to the qualifications of their LinkedIn profile (Carson & Marshall, 2019).
