Efrem Bycer on workers getting green skills

Thought leaders share ideas with WorkingNation Overheard at JFF Horizons 2023

“We’re looking at green jobs and green skills. I think that’s an important distinction in part because we know there’s a lot of obviously green jobs, but we also know we need a whole of economy transformation,” says Efrem Bycer, senior lead manager, Public Policy & Economic Graph, LinkedIn.

WorkingNation sat down with Bycer at JFF Horizons.

“We can see how green skills and the need to fight climate change applies to all jobs. And we see that a lot happening in the data,” says Bycer. “Right now, we see that roughly one in eight workers have at least one green skill on their profile. That might seem like a lot, but when we think about how we need that whole economy approach, we need to be accelerating and growing that number of workers who have at least one green skill across all sorts of occupations and titles.”

Bycer offers the auto industry and the related infrastructure as an example of the growing need for green job skills.
