Jobs Of The Future
The workplace as we know it is set to change, with huge technological advancements making sectors increasingly automated and resources being outsourced, it’s crucial we start to plan for the future.
Despite coming a long way and learning new experiences, industries across the globe will see monmumentous shifts where talent is fought over fiercely, teams begin to self-organise and where wellness is one of the most important factors for candidates seeking new job opportunities.
Let’s have a look at the workplace in 2030:
- There Will Be “Places to Work”- The best workplaces will have different quiet areas so that workers have choices to where they want to work, eliminating assigned seating altogether.
- Smaller Individual Organisations - There will be smaller corporations. With so much opportunity for collaborations, there will be no need to build a costly big business.
- Less Hierarchy - Everyone will be a leader. Work will thrive in teams, not with dictators
- Big Emphasis on Wellness - Offices will be much healthier environments, whether that’s good lighting, relaxation areas, sleeping rooms, music, pets at work, etc.
- Goodbye, Desk - There won’t be any physical desks; employees will just park themselves anywhere and have a simulated office before their eyes.
- Robot Assistants - All workers at all levels will be using robotic helpers in the future like Siri or Alexa, to sort through incoming email, schedule meetings, create spreadsheets, etc.
Along with changes in the workplace we will see differences with the most in-demand skills that workers will need to develop if they want to secure a job in the future.
