We are living through a fundamental transformation in the way we work. Automation and ‘thinking machines’ are replacing human tasks and jobs, and changing the skills that organisations are looking for in their people. These momentous changes raise huge organisational, talent and HR challenges – at a time when business leaders are already wrestling with unprecedented risks, disruption and political and societal upheaval.  But what will the future look like?

The pace of change is accelerating. Competition for the right talent is fierce. And ‘talent’ no longer means the same as ten years ago; many of the roles, skills and job titles of tomorrow are unknown to us today. How can organisations prepare for a future that few of us can define? How will your talent needs change?  

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.

The team of the PWC Global presents their report published in July 2017 Workforce of the future: The Competing Forces shaping  2030 - which looks at four possible Worlds of Work for 2030 

Red World : Innovation rules
Blue World : Corporate is King
Green World : Companies Care
Yellow World : People come First

This report draws on research begun in 2007 by a team from PwC and the James Martin Institute for Science and Civilisation at the Said Business School in Oxford and a specially commissioned survey of 10,000 people in China, India, Germany, the UK and the US. It gives insights into how people think the workplace will evolve and how this will affect their employment prospects and future working lives.
