The success of productivity in working from home and the infrastructure put in place to support it have opened up new possibilities to diversify the workforce and be much more inclusive in hiring. One study suggests that in the UK alone, there are 3.8 million people previously unable to work full time in an office who could be brought into the workplace under different scenarios.
Technological advances have increased the pace at which products are brought to market and shortened their life cycles. As a result, companies are now more than ever forced to remain flexible and competitive and are thus more inclined to form work teams, rather than assigning tasks to individuals (LePine, 2003).

The narrative of the individual has been the dominant voice in our culture since the birth of the Enlightenment (“I think, therefore I am.”) Each person was raised to be individual, autonomous, self-reliant, and high achieving. It has been a glorious age of the individual – celebrating our break from the clutches of the monarchy to individual freedom and creative expression that resulted in ground-breaking achievements in science, medicine, technology, and education.
Recent experiences have taught us the value of knowing what skills reside within the organization, how demand for skills can swiftly shift with the market, and the value of deploying or developing existing employees to meet changing needs.
By knowing how work will change and the impact on skills demand, organizations can reskill or upskill their people to future-proof their workforces.
