So, what’s the line on this?
Managing the shifting Future of work is a top priority for business leaders in the post-COVID-19 world of XXI ca.
If there is someone within your company who thinks that this is just another buzzword, then we can disprove it, because Future of work is among us.
If someone says (the most common answer) that “Future of work is for Western companies and their managers while our aim is to implement the new strategy, keep sales at the planned level, reduce costs, etc.” — Well, this is the Future of Work!
If someone else says, (typical answer, by the way) “Future of work is not for everyone. This is the same as HR — effective work and management is an HR task. They need to know what to do with people so that they finish the project on time without dispersion of resources, join the new organizational structure and, in general, be a team”. — Well, this is also what is called the Future of Work!
So, there are plenty of areas of Future of work, but the most relevant of them are redeveloping the jobs instead of saving them, reskilling the employees instead of firing them, and optimizing the future-oriented skills which allow being one step ahead of a machine. About this, we are talking in our WTF Vlog Ep 28.
To sum it up, instead of saving something that will be gone, think about opportunities coming up with the changes!
The fundamentals of Future of Work are easy: to remain human in a technology-driven world, to see the new possibilities arising from the crisis, and to build a sustainable post-COVID future.
