Always remember that the future of work is happening now
Every company needs to understand the future of work
The future of work is happening now.
As the workforce changes, so does the experience economy. In-house roles are evolving into gig workers and vice versa; meaning, the gap between "employee" and "contractor" has become increasingly blurred. Companies must understand this shift and how it affects their workplace in order to drive positive change throughout their organization.
The workforce is changing
We’re not just talking about robots and automation, but also the ways in which our lives have changed because of technology. For example, we have more options thanks to smartphones and apps like Uber or Lyft — even if they come with problems like driverless cars taking jobs from drivers.
There are many benefits that come with this new way of working: flexibility, anonymity (you can work from anywhere), and freedom (no nine-to-five). But there are downsides as well — like having too much choice (which may overwhelm us) or feeling isolated from our coworkers if all we see of them is their avatar on Slack rather than in person.
Roles are evolving
Roles are evolving. Many of the trends we're seeing in our work environments today, such as remote work and crowdsourcing, have been around for decades, but they're gaining momentum.
The way we work is changing. It's not just about getting your job done faster—it's also about finding meaning in what you do and having control over your time and schedule.
The way we work isn't just changing—it's being reinvented entirely by the people who use it every day: us.
In-house vs. gig workers
There are key differences between in-house workers and gig workers.
In-house employees are more expensive and less flexible than contractors or freelancers, but they also tend to be more loyal, flexible and predictable.
Gig workers, on the other hand, offer flexible schedules for lower costs with greater freedom from supervision. They can also be unpredictable when it comes to their availability or completion times because they may not have set hours or shifts at all.
The workforce experience is changing and needs to keep up with the rest of the experience economy
Your workforce experience is changing.
And it needs to keep up with the rest of the experience economy.
The workforce experience is a key differentiator, especially in a highly competitive labor market where you're competing against other employers for talent. It's also an opportunity for your organization to showcase its values, culture, and brand identity through human interactions that demonstrate your company's mission and goals in an authentic way.
You can be sure that other companies are thinking about how they can improve their own work environments too—and those who do it best will have an edge over those who don't take advantage of this valuable resource.
