Event description
This new research, across 6 global regions, uncovers how our workforce and workplaces are evolving as we enter the 2020s.

About this Event

The fourth industrial revolution is accelerating the pace of change like no other time in history. The thread that holds this all together is digital. But as organisations transform, they realise that it is so much more.

Central to success in the digital era is how our human capital resources are deployed, managed and recognised.

Whole business transformation is demanding a multi-faceted approach to preparing businesses for success as we enter the new decade. At the heart of this is the changing face of the workforce.

There is a notable shift in the mix of our workforce. Terms like Blended Workforce, Invisible Workforce, and Contingent Workers are becoming more common. The rise of this less traditional, non-permanent workforce is the mega-trend for the 2020s.

According to the latest Deloitte Human Capital Trends Survey, one third of respondents employ so-called ‘alternative workers’ extensively. This number is set to increase massively in the next five years.

Professionals and permanent Talent are opting out of corporate life. Instead, they prefer to embrace a more digital, nomadic lifestyle so they can support their customers in a more flexible way.

On the other hand, organisations are starting to experience the true value of independent workers, leading to a rethink of the ideal ‘workforce mix’.

If this is not at the top of your agenda, it will be very soon as the revolution of the blended workforce intensifies.
