The only certainty in today’s workplace is change, and it’s showing no signs of slowing down anytime soon. Technology continues to evolve at warp speed. The employee demographic is quickly skewing younger as millennials begin overtaking 50% of the workforce by 2020 and bringing along their affinity for digital technology and desire for a balanced life. The emergence of contingent workers is fast creating a more diverse and global workforce. And entry into the worldwide marketplace – no matter the business’ size or industry – is accelerating.

How can HR organizations stay ahead of these changes while preparing for the future of work?

By taking advantage of the interconnectedness enabled by the digital economy, HR organizations can take proactive steps to adapt work practices to their employees’ evolving values, expectations, and needs. Consider social collaboration, for example. According to the McKinsey Global Institute, companies can increase the productivity of knowledge workers by as much as 25% once the technology is ingrained in management practices and organizational behavior.


By adopting technology powered by the digital economy, businesses can become fully networked – both in a technical and behavioral sense – to support an increasingly diverse, global, and tech-savvy workforce. But even better, technology can improve your business performance through greater employee engagement, which in turn increases customer satisfaction and promotes future growth.
