While there’s no way to know for sure what the future will bring, the major emerging trends of today can provide some pretty good insights to where we’re headed. Among the trends that are likely to have the greatest impact on our future are:
- Our increasing reliance on technology
- The utilization of Big Data
- The rise of intelligent machines
The question of human relevance to the workforce has become increasingly ambiguous as more companies, governments, and institutions look to automation and robotics to increase productivity, reduce costs, and increase profits. As this trend continues to grow, the implications this will have on the economy, organizations, and communities will be significant to say the least. The good news is that there is still time to take the necessary actions to position individuals, organizations, communities, and entire industries and sectors to thrive. By illustrating the method we used to evaluate our talent and workforce development strategies going forward, we have also created a tool that any organization can use to test their own strategies. By outlining this process, we hope to empower other organizations to create their long-term successful futures.
