The Technological Education and Skills Development Authority (TESDA) is planning to conduct a workplace skills survey to determine the potential impact of automation on job training requirements. Rosanna A. Urdaneta, TESDA director general for policies and planning, said the survey will be launched next month and will focus on the information technology and business process management (IT-BPM) sector and the construction sector. Urdaneta said the two sectors are believed to be the most affected by the growing adoption of artificial or augmented intelligence in the workplace. The survey, which will be done in partnership with the IT and Business Process Association of the Philippines (IBPAP), aims to identify the skills that the industry requires, and provide government agencies with information on how automation can affect businesses and employment. The survey results are expected to be released next year.
