We live in a time when the future of work is now. Increasing use of artificial intelligence, globally distributed teams, automation, and a rapid pace of change have all led to significant changes in the composition of the workforce, the way employees work, and what they expect from their job. Employees increasingly expect meaningful work.
In this technology-driven, remote workplace, employees at every level are under constant pressure to upgrade their skills. About six out of ten adults lack basic skills for communicating with technology. With the technological disruption, high-skilled workers are at risk, but low-skilled workers are at an even greater risk of being replaced.
An increase in remote operations has resulted in a greater need to collaborate digitally and evaluate performance differently. The future of work will continue to be characterized by learning and innovation. Today and in the future, work flexibility and talent retention are integral to business strategy. In addition to investing in tools and software, organizations must invest in building a highly engaged workforce by clarifying expectations and developing positive working relationships.
Strengthscape consultants are familiar with this radical shift as well as the various trends related to the future of work. In order to help organizations, shape their future of work, our consultants use tried-and-tested methods to assess current culture, processes, and practices that may be out of step with the characteristics of the future of work. We recommend best practices regarding new operating models, supporting hybrid working models, talent acquisition, and HR policies. We also offer employee training and coaching in both behavioral and technical areas of the business so that employees remain up to date with the knowledge and skills needed on the job.
