We recently caught up with DeeDee and asked her a few questions around the future of work.

  1. What are the top 3 biggest challenges and/or opportunities you see in the FoW space?

    Challenges are: to refocus on basic human skills such as one-to-one and group communication so to best use technology and not be a slave to it; reimagining/redesigning jobs and organisational structures and operations; to align the burgeoning project work culture with a tax and benefits system; developing new ways to manage and develop workforces that operate remotely.

    Opportunities: to redefine “talent” and all of the challenges listed above!

  2. What are the main Future of Work trends you’re currently seeing from your market coverage and insight?

    A lot of “awareness-raising” going on about increasing gender diversity in certain roles and in certain career specialisms but not a lot of problem solving going on. A focus on trying to fit working parents and careers into existing kinds of roles. Some engagement in developing flexible work spaces instead of committing to long-term office leases. Much greater emphasis on creating apprenticeships. Mobility comes in different forms and varieties and has different purposes. In global mobility terms, there is an ever greater focus on talent issues within global mobility functions and on the selection of talent to mobilise and in what capacity – a standard tour of duty (two to three years), a secondment or a project which could take on a “disruptive talent” aspect.

In today’s always-on working environment, knowledge workers are overloaded with information.
