Work is facing complex disruption in the face of three inter-connected forces:
- Rapid technological evolution
- Socio-economic polarization
- Changing workforce expectations
Emerging technologies are rapidly transforming the world of work…
… all within the backdrop of global socio-economic polarization…
… making it harder to meet people’s shifting expectations.
Employment preferences vary across the globe, but the desire for income security is universal.
Fairness between colleagues, in companies and in society is fundamental.
People increasingly seek meaning in their work..
..as well as a sense of engagement with others in that work.
People value personal and professional growth…
…employers that support continuous opportunity…
…greater flexibility on where and when to do that work, as well as work-life balanc..
..and greater freedom on how that work is done.
People are worried about the impact of technology on society..
..but feel confident about their own future employment prospects.
TRUST IN BUSINESS:
People trust business, but have high expectations.
If businesses don’t act, they will be unprepared for these challenges and unable to realize the opportunities of building a stronger business in a thriving society.
