- Technological advancement is only one of the accelerants driving the speed of change. Globalization and a greater move towards hybrid and remote working both have the potential to have a significant impact on the workforce –in terms of the way we work, where we work, and the way our work lifecycle progresses. In addition, growing demands by new generations entering the workforce, and the needs of a maturing workforce at the other end, plus continuing talent and recruitment challenges, means that organizations that want to succeed are prioritizing their people.
- By taking this human-centric approach, organizations can seize the opportunities, and address the potential challenges associated with accelerated technological change. This in turn will help society at large realize the opportunities digitization offers.
- By investing in training and skills development, working to shape policy for social good, and analyzing the risks around mental well-being, personal data and occupational health, safety and well-being, organizations can build trust and resilience, which can in turn be the keys that allow organizations – and the people in them – to flourish into the future.
