Involve employees and other stakeholders in your planning.
Employees were once left out of strategic planning and mired in old routine tasks and paper-dependent processes. But countless developments in our economy, culture, technological landscape, and recovering from the COVID-19 pandemic is changing how we manage anything and everything, and we need to involve employees.

Artificial Intelligence (AI) should focus everyone’s attention.
- Using technology is now becoming ubiquitous. You can use it for recruiting, onboarding, mobility, training and a host of other activities. The use of modern technology has become critical. As the 2020s unfold, the question of how to use technology responsibly should gain attention as a top issue.
Many skills have become more valuable.
- Virtually all jobs are likely to have some parts of them automated. As technology takes over more routine tasks, employees will need to develop and refine their skills. Since a larger share of your economy devotes itself to service, the soft power skills now in demand include collaboration, critical thinking, communications, employee experience and design thinking. The vital thing underpinning this will be your content creation and management.
The skills gap is forcing creative outsourcing.
- Many employees may need to change their occupations because technology will make their jobs obsolete. The change of pace has never been this fast. Digital disruption, automation of tasks and the outmoded skills are causing fundamental changes in the workplace. The barriers to progress can revolve around a lack of skilled talent among current employees and an inability to find qualified job candidates. Companies need to cast a wider net and get creative in how they source the best talent for their future.
Businesses learning environments must be enhanced.
- Same old, same old is no longer good enough to withstand the pressures of the future marketplace. Due to the evolution of most functions, change is happening at an exponential pace. Video conferencing, virtual reality and personalised learning powered by technology are fast becoming the norm.
Involve employees and customers in your digital transformation
Digital transformation is the process of modernising to compete in today’s marketplace and takes on many different forms. The critical issue is not to try and do everything at once or do everything by yourself. Rather, try collaborating with employees, customers and other stakeholders on your strategic planning for the future.
Business is becoming increasingly competitive as more inexpensive and reliable technology becomes available every day. As a consequence, it is becoming more critical as to how your future and workplace is developing.
You can choose to welcome future trends, as technology will continue to grow in importance. Perhaps counterintuitively, you can use it to deliver a workplace where people can cope and thrive as the future unfolds.
