8 Surprising Predictions About the Future of Work

There’s no denying that the landscape of work is changing. More and more companies are adopting flexible work policies, recognizing the dramatic (and positive) impact that it has both for business and employees. But do you ever wonder what the future holds for the world of work? Let’s try to figure it out.

It’s predicted that boomers and gen Xers will have second careers as they approach 50. These “encore” careers might be for philanthropic or financial reasons, but the even bigger assumption is that present employers will prepare these workers for their next careers by enriching their work with experiences and education. It is also anticipated that older Americans will take advantage of flexible work and look for part-time jobs, not full-time positions. They will represent the biggest segment of workers who take on contract jobs, freelance gigs, and alternate work assignments.

There is no guarantee that full-time work will be required in the future rather than freelance.

If you ask us, the future of work is fascinating! Not only the limits will be lifted on how old you can be to work, but also on where you work, how you work, and why you work! But until it happens you can always count on us if you plan to find a well-paid job according to your experience, skills, and knowledge.

Thank you for this amazingly informative article! I have always been wondering how a skilled worker will use his/hers knowledge in the future. I think even when we get older as qualified workers, our skills will still be needed. I also hope you will tell us more about this topic in your next posts. In my opinion, it is a very interesting topic, which can be developed, and I hope I am not the only one who thinks so.

Of course, you are not! As for me, I’ve been looking for accurate predictions about labor-market for quite some time, and this post actually shares some pretty interesting information on the topic.

You know, it’s been a while since I read a post on your blog but this article really got my attention. I really wonder what will happen with job search and qualified workers in 10 or 20 years and that’s why I find your article interesting. I’m also looking forward to some information on recent labor law updates in the USA and your digest of the most popular professions of this month. Thank you for what you do, keep posting great and interesting news!
