What We Can Learn from Willy Wonka

Thanks to two kids at home, I’ve seen “Charlie and the Chocolate Factory” (the 2005 version with Johnny Depp’s creepy hair) more times than I’d like to admit. In our most recent viewing, one key detail resonated: At the beginning of the movie, Charlie’s dad, Mr. Bucket, lost his job of putting caps on toothpaste tubes because the company brought in a machine to do it for him. I was startled to make the connection between artificial intelligence and its effect on the workforce in one of my sons’ favorite movies. 

In his article on “The New Work Ecosystem,” author Tom Starner addresses AI and how it’s affecting the skills gap. But, rather than addressing the displaced Mr. Buckets of the world, Starner addresses how AI is affecting employers in their search for talent. Rather than a shortage of traditional skills, employers are facing a shortage of skills due to the changing composition of work. 

How to solve for this? Upskillling, reskilling, relearning. Call it what you like but, most importantly, remember to embrace it. Author Ron Selewach (“Why You Should Be Using AI to Source Talent”) writes about how AI can bring recruitment in line with business goals. It’s well worth the read for anyone who’s recruiting talent and wants to stay current. Back to Starner’s article, there’s a great quote from Alvin Toffler about learning, unlearning and relearning; it sums the situation well.

The quote also ties well to the end of Tim Burton’s rendition of Willy Wonka (spoiler ahead). Mr. Bucket ends up getting rehired at the toothpaste factory — his new, better job: fixing the machine that replaced him when it broke down.


Happy Reading,
