General Information about Future of Work for Meeting Planners and Prospective Clients.

We live and work in a rapidly changing world. With artificial intelligence and automation developing to a point that computer systems can easily substitute many jobs that only people could once do, this shift looks as significant as the mechanization of manufacturing and agriculture was for previous generations. According to the World Economic Forum’s Future of Jobs report, by 2025, humans and machines will spend almost an equal amount of time on tasks in the workplace. Although many jobs will be forever lost, new ones will continue to be created, while we expand our technical skills and adapt to future trends and demands.

The Covid-19 pandemic and the massive lockdowns it gave rise to have accelerated the changes in the nature of work. Remote working, the effectiveness of video meetings, and the boom in e-commerce during the pandemic have made many organizations reconsider their future projects and business plans. The pandemic has shown that a new, hybrid way of working is possible at a greater scale than previously imagined. Yet, business leaders remain uncertain about the productivity outcomes entailed by the shift to remote or hybrid work. Finally, trends such the gig economy and freelance work seem to be getting more attention, regardless of the fact that they often come with challenges like a lack of job security and social protection.
