Future of Work survey

The future of work is as exciting as it is challenging.

Our digital, global, 24/7 business culture demands adaptation, flexibility, and foresight, pushing best practices far beyond the status quo. The human resources, management, and organisational structures of the past are simply not equipped to compete in this bold new era of global freelancing, self-organizing small-teams, and bottom-up leadership.

As technology advances, our skillsets are eroding and a new culture of learning will be necessary to keep our skills fresh. There is a greater emphasis on keeping employees healthy and happy in an ‘always connected’ world, and a necessity to innovate and adapt almost instantly. Out-moded ways of working will have no place in the 21st century working landscape. Instead, the future of work is innovative, flexible and lean.

In Atos’ The Future of Work report, in collaboration with futurist Richard van Hooijdonk, we explore the trends set to dominate the workplace over the next 20-30 years. Would you like to read more?
