Do You Already Know How Your Team Will Work In The Future?
A new generation of disruptive technologies is currently accelerating the digital transformation of the world of work and business.
The workplace of the future is already actively in use in many areas and will continue to evolve at a rapid pace. The workplace, as well as employee sustainability, will become even more important key factors for companies in the fight for the best talents in the future.
At the beginning of the Corona phase, when the new workplace concepts and mobile working were introduced across the board in practice, there were many reservations and concerns about the future performance of employees. After these working models became established and practice also proved that it could work smoothly, it became clear that employee productivity did not take a step backwards. In fact, the opposite was often the case.
With digital transformation in focus and agile working as the working standard, employees will move from so-called ‘managed services’ to ‘managed outcomes’. This working model gives them a stronger sense of belonging - they realise much more directly that they are contributing to business outcomes.
These work formats give companies access to specialists regardless of where they live. This is also a great advantage with regard to the changing world of work. Because in the future, diverse work will be standardised and also be part of the norm.
“In many companies, employees will work more agilely within the company in the future. They will be ‘placed’ internally through a company’s own talent pool or talent cloud. They store their talents and skills in profiles so that managers can put together members for the teams from the talent pool. At the technology company IBM, this is already practised today. The departments book experts from the company for their projects. In the working world of the future, we will have to depart from many old thought patterns. In Executive Search, we also see our business model in a highly transformed format. This has reinforced our actions to adjust our view forward and to deal with the new challenges in order to be able to implement them in the best possible way “, says Martin Krill, managing partner of Hager Unternehmensberatung, which specialises in executive search.
