What will the employee of tomorrow look like?

Did you ever think about what the employee of the future is going to be like? How will look the situation on labour market for example in the year 2028? There will be lots of changes in various aspects of the work, what will have a great impact on the future workers. There will be a change in the dominant business ideology from an American/European one to an Eastern/Asian one as we can see also nowadays the importance of China or India in the global economies. Do you think the main language of our children in schools will be chinese?

Another dramatic change we can await is likely to be in the age profile of the workforce… More people aged 65 years and over is expected to stay in work and to be economically active and the new age for retirement is likely to be about age 75.

The major role (even more important than the salary ) will play things like family-friendly policies or good social responsibility record. If you might think that the employees in 20 years will spend his day sitting at his desk from nine to five, you are not right. Progress in technology will enable to make the work more effective and there will be more opportunities to become remote worker and have your workplace at home. The situation for women, migrants and minorities is also likely to be better… You can read more here.

  1. Yes, I can imagine, how our labour market will look like in the future:)
    These days, there are so many things, which we can managed through internet. For example, we can pay bills through net, buying things, check so many other information on website…
    So, maybe we could work from our seats with computer when we will be 75:)
    There are so many progresses and changes in tehnology in
    these modern time, and we still dont know what else we will uncover in the future.
    But there are also many disadvantages of this spectacular developing in technology. There are many people who spent most of their time on their computer, and they are at home all the time.
    So if we will have a workplace at home, than we will spend our time mostly at home, and this is not healthy for us!
    I think that this developing system will make us inhuman and also the communication and social relations between people will not be the same anymore. We allready have so many internet communities, we meet and talk with people there, and this virtual world become so generally and indispensable in the present time.
    I think that we will have balanced this relation between the technology and humanity in the future.

  2. I found some forecast about Latvian workers in future – The 2008 forecast of the European Foundation for the Improvement of Living and Working Conditions estimated that by 2012 up to 40,000-50,000 people could leave the country. The research showed that 7.4% of the inhabitants “[did] not connect their future” with Latvia.

    The results of the poll showed that 56.6% of respondents intended to leave Latvia because of small salaries, 55% would leave the country in order to find better working conditions, and 34.7% strive for the better living conditions in general. Something the same what I wrote on one f my last posts.

  3. Yesterday-Today-Tomorrow
    We have lots of imaginations of the topic. But in the future they won’t be a dream anymore. As we can see it today.
    In education system of Turkey gives very importance to foreign languages nowadays. In some schools they have started to teach Chinese.
    Secondly, Our government has been preparing new reforms about the Social Security.There will be a new reform about the new age for retirement.It will be likely to be the age of 65.
    We have to accept that time has been changing. Surely, the social relations can be changed but we can improve the technology and social relations at the same time.İ think it mustn’t be so difficult to do.Let’s start and try!
