Last week’s LinkedIn Live session discussed the emerging world of work.
The pandemic has wreaked havoc as well as presented opportunities. Crippling situations of the past have been catalysts for societal changes. During such transitions, there are those who thrive and others who do not.
There is an inflection point that will require tough decisions by those in business, government, and social protection groups. There is a responsibility among all of us to build for the future.
Nearly every member of the workforce whose jobs were defined by a pre-pandemic position description are at risk.
Consumers will adapt which forces industries, workers, and governments to adapt. Consumers, industries and technologies all adapt rather quickly, what does not adapt quickly and will ultimately be the lynch-pin to the outcome of this scenario is the governments of the world and how they will adapt and respond.
None of the government regimes in the world are digital natives. Their experience to date has been exclusively in the analog world.
The impact of this digital transition will be so rapid that if we get it less right than wrong, industries will continue to be devastated and entire categories of people will become irrelevant in the emerging workforce.
