Discover what lies ahead for work in 2024.

Decentralized Workplace

Remote and hybrid work arrangements will support flexibility, productivity, and work-life integration in 2024. As a result, candidate pools will increase, and less time and money will be spent commuting.

Changing Workplace Demographics

Shifts in traditional hierarchies will alter company demographics in 2024:

  • Additional baby boomers will retire.
  • Immigrants will continue to join the workforce.
  • The gender pay gap will decline.
  • Age, race, and education will be less of a barrier to career progression.

Technological Skill Development

Understanding and using the latest technology will be a top priority in 2024. Examples include:

  • Using tech-based tools to work remotely or hybrid
  • Making data-driven decisions
  • Increasing awareness of cyber threats

Ongoing Learning

Reskilling and upskilling will be required to keep pace with emerging technologies, especially those involving data and AI. Online learning will help employees prepare for the future.

Data Use

Because data increasingly will impact jobs, understanding how to use the data will be essential. For instance, metrics will be used to measure productivity. Also, data will be used to make more informed decisions and increase efficiencies in processes.

Better Employee Experience

Employers will focus more on ensuring employee satisfaction throughout their duration with the organization. Work-life integration, wellness, intellectual challenge, and professional development will be critical.

Sustainable Work Practices

Employers and employees will consider and reduce the impact of their actions on the environment. Rethinking where employees work and implanting circular processes that minimize waste and encourage reusing and recycling resources will impact work behaviors.

Generative Artificial Intelligence

Generative artificial intelligence (AI) will increase efficiency in most tasks and lines of work. As a result, employees who can use AI and still demonstrate creativity, compassion, and innovation will be in high demand.
