Human impact and tech’s effect on employee/organization relationships
Emergent tech’s development into widespread usage
Fast-forward a bit.
The year 2028 has arrived, and it’s introduced a never-before-seen working life to a new generation of candidates and employees.
Some talented job seekers fail to get hired because the algorithm says “no.” Other employees have their BMI monitored by their employer to ensure they’re fit and for work.
The dynamics of the employee/employer relationship have never been so fluid.
Scenarios of two people living in the new world of work vary greatly. One of them flourishes with their online portfolio of work and sees the collection in high demand from project to project. They use new technology to protect the quality of their creative output, which is so highly valued by employers.
The other person struggles to find any work at all; marked by algorithms as a poor cultural fit for most organizations. They also struggle to correct and incorrect entry on their blockchain CV, which makes them out to be a poor team player.
Back to present day.
The future of work has different implications for different job seekers, along with technology’s role in fundamentally changing the way they work. D’Souza says the future of work will have impact on individual experiences, so the role of HR will have to change and adapt accordingly.
