The pace of change is accelerating. Automation and 'thinking machines' are replacing human tasks, changing the skills that organisations are looking for in their people. But how can organisations prepare for a future that few of us can define?
This isn’t a time to sit back and wait for events to unfold. To be prepared for the future, you have to understand it.
In this study 'Workforce of the future', where PwC Belgium contributed to, we look in detail at how the workplace might be shaped over the coming decade by means of four possible scenarios of Worlds of Work in 2030.
PwC’s Global People and Organisation leaders discuss the report findings and the competing forces that are influencing the world of work.
Rapid advances in technological innovation
The changing size, distribution and age profile of the world’s population
Significant increase in the world’s population moving to live in cities
Shifts in global economic power
Power shifting between developed and developing countries
Resource scarcity and climate change
Depleted fossil fuels, extreme weather, rising sea levels and water shortages
Organisations and individuals that understand potential future scenarios and what each might mean for them, and plan ahead, will be the best prepared to succeed.
