The Fellowship sets out to explore the consequences of technological developments on the world of work with an emphasis on the public sector
The digital revolution has far-reaching consequences for the world of work at an ever increasing pace. Processes such as automation, integration of digital platforms, and technological innovation change the nature of work itself, jobs disappear and new jobs require new skills. These changes pose a special challenge for the public sector, which is characterized by more limited organizational flexibility than the private sector.
Together with the German-Israeli Future Forum Foundation (DIZF), the Israel Public Policy Institute (IPPI) offers young professionals from Germany an opportunity to participate in a Fellowship program in cooperation with the Civil Service Commission at the Israeli Prime Minister’s Office on the theme of the “Future of Work in the Public Sector”.
The Fellows program provides young public policy professionals from Germany with an opportunity to work alongside practitioners at the CSC and learn about how the Israeli government tackles the issue of workforce planning at the age of technological disruption.
