Our experts’ recommendations regarding the future of work

The recommendations of the experts of the Bankinter Innovation Foundation focus on promoting 4 key elements to create a competitive future of work.

These are times of uncertainty and change. If we can combine emerging innovations with the will to change of companies and professionals we can open the door to an incredibly positive future.

“Everything we’ve learned during the pandemic, the new ways of communicating, working, learning, must be the starting point to design the future of work. There is really no excuse to go back where we were.”

Humanizing the future of work is the first determining factor. We must rethink and redefine the meaning of success, both from an individual and business angle: generating wealth, promoting well-being and health, and supporting social and environmental sustainability are all part of a whole that defines success.

The second determining factor lies in the strong social relations component of work, which is intrinsic to human beings. Besides providing economic means, work weaves interpersonal networks that give us a sense of purpose and belonging. As pointed out by our trustee Ángel Cabrera, that is something that technology cannot provide, therefore hybrid work will become the norm, albeit there will be various degrees of on-site vs remote.

Future Trends Forum experts have identified the key challenges for the future of work, to help build such future:

  1. Design a holistic learning system and HR re-cycling.
  2. Attract and retain global talent, what should a nation do to attract talent.
  3. Create appealing work conditions to facilitate relations between companies and workers.
  4. Promote innovation and digitalization.

Experts have designed innovative solutions for each of these challenges. These solutions might come to reality with the necessary time and capital investment.
