There is no question that the pandemic has changed the future of work. From an increased focus on health and safety to transitioning to permanent (or indefinite) remote work, or preparing for business transformation, companies are facing critical business challenges in regard to their most important asset — their people.
Technological advancement, economic pressures and unexpected global events such as the COVID-19 pandemic have all led to a significant increase in appetite for agility and flexibility in workforces. Traditional employment models are being transformed, with many global organizations moving away from the typical 9-5 office work existence in favor of contingent, temporary, remote, platform-based and crowdworking models. As the use of automation and AI accelerate, in the wake of a global pandemic, there has never been a more critical time for organizations wishing to stay competitive to innovate and revolutionize their working practices.
