Future of work is a big topic that can write tons of new ideas at different times as any technology and business world transformation occurs. We are now writing in the junction from the majority of the countries already reaching the milestone of giving their citizens 2 rounds of vaccine, and most of the restriction for back to normal work is initiated.
But you do not expect the world will roll back to pre COVID-19, since it is different after 16 months WHO declared for the COVID-19 pandemic. As it is well observed and even not being reported by some countries to censor the unemployment rate or attempt to polish it for other reasons. We all know those that can not cope with the COVID-19 lockdowns or reduce in store shopping and eating experience, all shutdowns during the periods. Same goes for the industries and sectors that depend on the open border for inflow and outflow of people, such as travel and tourism, hotels and related businesses.
For companies that survive, it is not evolved but transformed and adopted the changing reality and heavily invested in the digital technology. From allowing real video meetings over the web to reach all the employees across regions and planets becomes a norm, the need for unnecessary middle tier management that was useful for the past is phased out at the accelerated speed. Companies across the globe are geared toward the digital workforce, those who can perform their roles, duties, responsibility in the remote work and capable of working with remote team work manner to get business done.
Companies start to adopt digital staffing, interview and hiring on the web live. This helps to streamline the process and eliminate the traditional turnaround time. Smart workplaces or the term Smart Space has been invented for a long time, and the definition is not expanded further to cover those remote to work areas.
If you are not yet used to leveraging those technologies and services to get things done, you are better to wake up and catch up. Else you are losing to the younger generation who are getting used to leverage those technologies and services.
Modern workplace keeps changing, from the earlier typewriter to computer keyboarding, then network, and internet followed. Cloud computing and remote to work and various new technologies continue to shape the future of work in the better, faster tomorrow for everyone.
