Shaping the Future of Work

What are the forces of change?

The Future Trends Forum experts group the forces of change into four interconnected groups: More connected and better trained professionals, companies with a purpose in pursuit of the best talent, technology as an enabler of new ways of working and creator of new jobs, and a more socially and environmentally aware society.

These four forces, accelerated by the pandemic, lead us to a future of work where professionals are always learning new social and digital skills, and companies are increasingly aware of the especially important role they play for the wellbeing of society and the planet.

What are the forces of change?

The future of work will have professionals in continuous training and companies more aware of their role in society.

Workers of the Future

How will the workers of the future be?

Professionals will need to make an effort to be up to speed with digital, technical and social skills. The ability to learn new things will be particularly relevant. Lifelong learning will be the norm, together with multi-disciplinarity, a highly regarded quality by companies. Having multiple skills and navigating uncertain environments will be more important than being a specialist to be considered as appealing talent for a company.

This trend has accelerated with David Epstein’s thoughtful and conclusive book Range, a non-fiction bestseller in the US in 2019.

How will the workers of the future be?

50% of the workforce needs to bring their digital and social skills up to date.

Companies with a Purpose in Pursuit of the Best Talent

For expert Jason Wingard, President at Temple University and well-known CEO and steering committee advisor, retaining and appealing the best talent are top priorities for companies. For this, new organizational designs and leadership styles must be outlined and put in practice, applying innovation and new technologies smartly, redefining and taking to action the corporate purpose, around which culture and values bring together the best.
