Here are Paul’s 10 predictions for 2020, and for more detail, read his predictions blog:
- “Accessibility” rises in importance as part of a new “inclusive workplace” focus.
- Humans are winning – the “bots will replace us” dystopia is not unfolding in line with predictions, so organizations can invest in their people with confidence.
- Microsoft Teams rapidly affects ways of working through integration and innovation – outflanking its competitors.
- Digital literacy and work flexibility/mobility join forces as “fellow travellers” on the same journey – as we become both digitally smarter and more mobile.
- The youngest workers raise the digital bar ever higher – stimulating more distinctive, innovative and experimental digital workplaces.
- Environmental ambitions start to affect how and where work happens. Air travel declines (slightly) and virtual meetings (with video) continue their steady rise in usage.
- Hiring dedicated enterprise search experts gains ground – while intelligent search technology continually improves.
- Analytics, measurement and insights reveal hidden patterns in how work happens – as new dashboards start to be enabled.
- Increased budgets are allocated to behaviour and culture change, as these areas become recognized as key factors in digital workplace success.
- Importance and resourcing of ‘Digital HR’ accelerate as the digitization of the employee experience and ‘people factors’ get real attention after years of neglect.
