Preparing For The Future Of Work: Anna Robinson Of Ceresa On The Top Five Trends To Watch In The Future Of Work
by PRP Group, on 09/26/2022
Hybrid/remote work. This one is likely obvious to most of your readers. The pandemic fundamentally changed our understanding of the possibilities of remote work. As I already mentioned, we now consider it fully normal to interview, teach, socialize, play games, and problem-solve through virtual connections. That is such a huge shift of what we thought was possible, let alone could ever be the norm. Most companies will have to figure out how to adapt to this, or face a considerably smaller talent pool to draw from.
There have been major disruptions in recent years that promise to change the very nature of work. From the ongoing shifts caused by the COVID19 pandemic, the impacts caused by automation, and other possible disruptions to the status quo, many wonder what the future holds in terms of employment. For example, a report by the McKinsey Global Institute estimated that automation will eliminate 73 million jobs by 2030.
To address this open question, we reached out to successful leaders in business, government, and labor, as well as thought leaders about the future of work to glean their insights and predictions on the future of work and the workplace.
As a part of this interview series called “Preparing For The Future Of Work”, we had the pleasure to interview Anna Robinson.
