We experience fundamental changes in the way we work and will work in the near future.
A new wave of digitalisation and smart automation – combinations of machine learning, robotics, artificial intelligence and other technologies – is transforming the workplace at an unprecedented pace. Individual workers have to constantly upload their employagility. Organisations are faced with the challenge to help them do this and at the same time re-organise to converge with disruptions. On top of this, there is the fear that a scarcity of talent can cool down the economy prematurely.
So, there is no time to sit back and wait for events to unfold. We have to act NOW on all levels and rethink how we organise our work relations and how we facilitate our work agents to upgrade the competencies and skills they require at any given time to be (and stay) successful. For this, you have to understand all that is shaping the future of work first.
That is what ‘The Future of Work – a wake-up call for people, organisations and government’ is all about. In this newest publication of PwC People & Organisation we try to predict the future dynamics of the Dutch labour markets from the three perspectives that are foremost shaping them: flexibility, technology and inequality. We describe the opportunities and threats for all stakeholders involved:
companies and other organisations
employees, other workers (such as the 1.5 million+ self-employed ZZP) and the unemployed
employer representative organisations and trade unions
politicians, policy-makers and the government
educational institutions and relevant social organisations.
Our 'Future of work 2030' report helps you kick-start your thinking. Use the possible solutions and calls to action as well as our roadmap to 2030 and engage in a dialogue with clients, workers, social partners, politicians, policy-makers and other stakeholders.
