Technology skills will be at a premium, people will work anywhere, and firms will recruit talent to design work which will be done by machines in future, as companies adapt to meet the demands and needs of a changing world.
These are just some of the findings of Flagship Group who are spearheading an initiative to become a future-ready employer.
Led by Victory Housing Managing Director and Flagship Group Director of People and Workplaces Lisa Collen and Director of IT Matt Brazier, the project is underpinned by extensive research including a comprehensive review of Flagship’s customer experience.
Lisa Collen explained: “We know that the world of work is changing and we are keen to stay ahead of the curve to help us to adapt and attract and retain the best talent. Already we have made great progress in becoming an employer which meets the needs of both our people and our customers, not least with the introduction of agile working to offer a truly flexible role.
Flagship’s research found that in the world of work of the future:
Lisa said: “In the future, there will be greater competition for talent as employers seek skills to design rather than do the work, the delivery of which will become more automated. As employers, we need to recognise this trend and upskill our people accordingly.
“We also need to recognise that the traditional model of working is not going to be effective. With increased flexibility and the changing needs of business, work will become what we do and not where we go.”
The project has also identified some key areas where employers need to consider taking action. This includes:
And, Flagship are placing their future employees at the heart of the project with the establishment of a working group which brings together a number of aspiring leaders to translate the research into an action plan for the Group.
Lisa explained: “We are empowering this group of staff to help to shape Flagship into the employer of tomorrow. We know that Flagship is an employer of choice for today, and we want to ensure that we continue to be so in the changing years to come.”
Flagship will share its findings on Tuesday 17th September, as Deputy CEO Helen Walsham speaks at a major conference on the future of work.
