The Future of Work

Central governments have invested considerable time and effort predicting and planning for the ‘future of work’. If we assume nothing will change we are all at risk of sleepwalking into social and economic problems.

In its simplest form ‘work’ refers to human productivity; what work is done and who carries it out, alongside how work is conducted and where it takes place?

It’s a huge area of discussion and difficult to clearly define.

One certainty is that the traditional model of hiring people as employees is shifting to a more flexible solution.

Public and private sector organizations increasingly need specific skills to deliver well-defined projects and services - why take on all the overhead of a generalist employee, when you can hire an independent expert to deliver exactly what’s needed.

Research carried out by the UK government, which looks forward to 2030, highlights disrupting factors and how these might be overcome.

Additionally, McKinsey’s study of the US economy over the same time period offers in depth focus on working trends on a state-by-state basis.
