Shaping the future of work
Digital technologies are changing work as we know it
What is the future of work?
Imagine if the typical worker could reach new levels of productivity using high-tech tools, offload mundane responsibilities to machines so they can focus on more meaningful work, and do hazardous but essential tasks from a safe distance with sophisticated, remote-controlled equipment.
This is the future of work that awaits enterprises and public sector agencies. Everything from safety and collaboration to innovation and job satisfaction will benefit as accelerated digitalization realizes the objectives of Industry 4.0 and the industrial metaverse.
Why is the future of work important?
Digitalization sets the stage for safer, more efficient and more inclusive workplaces and is key to meeting ambitious productivity, resilience and sustainability goals.
Better worker safety monitoring, pervasive intelligence, anomaly detection, intelligent automation, advanced robotics and more can help enterprises and public sector agencies keep their people safe while also minimizing capital costs and damage from accidents.
Addressing talent scarcity
As experienced staff exit the workforce, digital tools and worker assistance technologies that appeal to a digital-native labor pool and eliminate barriers into the job market will help companies fill essential roles. Ensuring this new workforce is engaged in what they do — by relieving them from repetitive and mundane tasks — can also help reduce costly staff turnover and generate better outcomes for businesses. In addition, digitalization will help create jobs and boost demand for specialists ranging from data scientists to cybersecurity experts and robotics technicians.
Boosting job satisfaction
Digital technologies can liberate workers from the responsibility of completing repetitive or mundane tasks. This empowers employees to spend more time on work that puts their skills to better use and provides opportunities for growth and advancement. Digital tools can also offer more choice over when and where employees work and enable new, more immersive ways of collaborating with colleagues.
By providing new hires with immersive training experiences and real-time access to remote experts, companies can accelerate onboarding to start seeing results faster. Digital tools that offer on-the-job guidance and encourage lifelong learning will support greater productivity and a higher quality of work for all employees.
By boosting overall job satisfaction, organizations can also increase productivity: happy employees who are engaged and feel valued are more productive on the job. Tools designed for productivity can also help employees do more in less time. Digitalizing paper-based processes and automating time-consuming and redundant tasks means workers can focus on more valuable responsibilities that have bigger impact on the business.
