Insights

Our members offer their knowledge, foresight and experience to organizations around the world who wish to solve their issues regarding information and application overload and other issues related to enterprise tech becoming a barrier to productivity.

Augmenting Humanity

As machine learning and AI take shape in the workplace, expect augmented intelligence to reshape the future of work. Areas with high repetitive, high volume, high nodes of interactions, and high complexity will most likely be moved to automation and AI. Skill sets that require creativity, new levels of complexity, and physical presence will remain in human hands. This augmentation of humanity will reshape not only how we work, but also determine where we work, what we work on, when we work and why we work.

Amy Morin BW

Rise of the Remote Workers

Organizations will optimize the remote worker experience by implementing new processes and tools that increase engagement so businesses can empower people to work where they are most comfortable. Giving employees the power to choose their location during work hours is an important step towards increasing productivity throughout an organization.

Amy Morin

Psychotherapist, lecturer, author, and internationally recognized expert in mental strength.  Her  book 13 Things Mentally Strong People Don’t Do is an international bestseller.

Working in Transit

As we enter the era of autonomous cars, mobile work stations are going to be much more elaborate and sophisticated. Soon, workers will be able to set up a whole work station in their back seat, and it won’t be much different than sitting in an office.

Dr. Paul Root Wolpe

Asa Griggs Candler Professor of Bioethics at Emory University. Dr. Wolpe is the author of over 125 articles, editorials, and book chapters in sociology, medicine, and bioethics.

Alxandra Levit BW

Measuring Productivity

We’ll see a rise of analytics that tell, from an objective standpoint, who is more productive, who will stay/leave a job, where the greatest source of qualified recruits are coming from, etc. We have a very small percentage of organizations using analytics in this way (only 15% right now), and we’ll start to see more organizations adopting this in the coming year(s).

Alexandra Levit

formerly nationally syndicated workplace columnist for the Wall Street Journal and New York Times as well as best-selling author of They Don’t Teach Corporate in College

Manfred Leu BW

A New Path to Employee Engagement

Knowledge workers will adopt quickly to new ways of working with information and collaborating with colleagues, if we can inspire them by offering creative and user-friendly solutions, and surprise them with exceptional service at any touchpoint throughout the entire user journey. Young talents will choose their employer also based on a modern working environment and their perceived working culture.

Manfred Leu

Head of Digital Workplace User Adoption & Consulting and a Director of IT at Swiss Re.

AI Gets Pragmatic:

The promise of AI starts to be realized, but in limited, practical ways. Rather than the job-eating technology that people fear, AI will power cloud applications that are able to anticipate information a worker will need to complete a task and provide it proactively. It sounds counter-intuitive, but AI will actually help humanize technology.

Co-Founder and Vice President of Marketing and Product Strategy, harmon.ie.

The nature of work is changing but are organisations ready to embrace remote working? As technological advances, such as autonomous cars and virtual reality (VR) take hold, it will be interesting to see how employers’ views shift when the ‘work from anywhere’ paradigm begins to infiltrate new parts of our daily life.

We face increased competition for our attention at home and in the workplace, and this is cause for concern. Increased use of addictive technology makes it hard for us to focus for extended periods of time. While this hardly news, what is new is that industry insiders are, for the first time, starting to take action to mitigate these effects. Read more
