No matter the functional group, today’s business executives are consistently exposed to discussions related to the Future of Work.
- Why the Future of Work is not a mere concept or idea…it’s a movement. The Future of Work is often misunderstood; calling it a simple “concept” does not do it justice. The Future of Work is a real movement that reflects how businesses are revolutionizing the ways they think about work and talent and the symbiotic relationship between the two.
- Why the Future of Work has three distinct components. The Future of Work Compendium builds on last year’s edition by breaking down this movement into three distinct categories: the continued evolution of talent (direct sourcing, self-sourcing, digital staffing, the agile workforce, etc.), the impact of innovation (progressive contingent workforce management technology, artificial intelligence, intelligent automation, etc.), and the transformation of business strategy.
- How the transformation of business strategy could be the most critical component of the Future of Work. As stated earlier, conversations around the Future of Work are typically dominated by thoughts about technology, however, innovative thinking is proving to be just as crucial. Transformational thinking, flexible attitudes towards work, and new focal areas within business strategy are the hardline linchpins for bringing organizations into the Future of Work. The “talent experience,” inclusive business environments, and innovation-ready cultures all promote the ideal means of transforming how businesses develop forward-looking strategies in relation to talent and work.
