Most of predictions started coming true in just 6 months and today about 90% of the predictions are already in place. Some of the key trends predicted were – increased asset utilisation in homes, digital classrooms and virtual learning being the new norm and replacement of the physical workplaces by digital workplaces as the primary environment. You can see a complete list of predictions in the graphic.
Shekhar Sanyal, Country Head and Director, IET India said, “I am delighted to see that most of our predictions regarding how the nature of work, workplace and workforce will shape in the future have come true, rather at lightning speed. When we were working on the playbook, we were under the assumption that these changes would reflect in the next 2-3 years. However, the pandemic changed the tides and made the future of work a new normal, rather sooner than later.
During the last few months, we have seen that the impact of the future of work has varied across industries, geographies and business models and that it has already become the new normal. We can clearly see that future of work will continue to shape organisation policies and structures making the importance of IET’s Future of Work Playbook very high for decision-makers. This playbook not only presents an overview of the key trends, predictions and evidence on the future of work but also provides practical insights to help organisations and management make informed decisions. We at the IET hope that this playbook will help your transition easier and help you swiftly navigate through the demands of tomorrows’ jobs.”
