• Congratulations! You are the Largest Generation of the Work Force
• How do you define Success? It’s different today
• Future of Work Trends for Business Leaders
• Work Places and Organizations are evolving…Are you?
• Mobile Worker
• Freelancing is the new Black
• The Future of Work in a Global Economy
• Are you ready to be Boss? Maybe…Maybe Not?
• When you Run the Show
• The Future is Yours!
Today’s Topics
How do you Define Success?
"Paying your dues, moving up slowly and getting the
corner office — that's going away. In 10 years, it will be
gone,"
"Instead, success will be defined not by rank or seniority
but by getting what matters to you personally,"
• Whether that's the chance to lead a new-product
launch or being able to take winters off for
snowboarding.
• "Companies already want more short-term
independent contractors and consultants and fewer
traditional employees.
• Seniority matters less and less as time goes on, because
it's about the past, not the future."
So What Will
Be The Future
Work Trends in
the next 20
years?
Throw away the briefcase;
you’re not going to the OFFICE.
You can kiss your BENEFITS
goodbye too! Your NEW BOSS
won’t look much like your old
one. There’s no longer a
Corporate Ladder. You may
NEVER RETIRE, but’s there’s a
World of OPPORTUNITY; IF you
figure out a new Path…
KEY TRENDS FOR BUSINESS LEADERS
• When it comes to the
future of work there are a
few key trends which
business leaders need to
pay attention to.
• Understanding these trends
will allow organizations to
better prepare and adapt to
the changes which are
impacting the way we
work.
Future Trends Are
• Changing behaviors which are being shaped by social media
entering the enterprise.
• New collaborative techniques
and technologies
• Flexible Workplaces
• Support your Personal Mission
• A shift to the “cloud” for your
work effort
• Mobility and “connecting to
work.”
Behaviors Shaped by Social Media
• We are seeing inside our organizations as it relates to
“social” collaboration is being fueled by what is
happening on the web.
• Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, Foursquare and many
others have given rise to more robust and business
oriented counterparts such as Jive, Yammer, Chatter,
and dozens of others.
• The web helps encourage and support new
behaviors such as creating communities, being open
and transparent, sharing information and ideas,
easily being able to find people and information,
and collaboration.
• These behaviors (and technologies) are now making
their way into our organizations and are helping
shape the future of work.
Workplaces Must Empower Collaboration and Innovation
• The millennial generation
essentially demands a corporate
culture anchored in collaboration.
• Recent studies show 82 percent of
millennials believe collaboration is
the key to innovation and aspire to
work in companies that agree.
• This means organizations should invest in technology and spaces that
encourage and drive collaboration while also enabling the type of work
their people need to get done.
New collaborative technologies
• New collaborative technologies are dramatically
impacting the way we work.
• These technologies give us the freedom and
flexibility to work from anywhere, anytime.
• Being able to find subject matter experts and
connect with colleagues (known or unknown)
across the globe is now a possibility that didn’t
exist.
• Hierarchies are being flattened regardless of
seniority and information is being opened up
instead of being locked down.
• Systems are being connected and opportunities
for business process improvement, customer
experience, and overall efficiency improvement
abound.
Workplaces must be flexible
• When it comes to where and how work gets done,
the millennial generation loves freedom of choice.
• Able to get work done on laptops, smartphones
and tablets, employees are no longer tethered to
their desks as they were a decade ago.
• Employers need to offer flexible workspaces that
allow people to move, change positions and work
in different areas throughout the day.
• Organizations at the forefront of responding to
this demand are introducing “hubs” of flexible
office space that can offer up to 10 different types
of work settings.
• These hubs then allow employees to sit, stand,
lean, gain privacy and move around throughout
the day as they feel necessary.
Companies Must Support Your Mission
• The millennial generation believes business should
do more than generate profit, it should also
change the world.
• The 2014 Millennial Impact survey indicates that
97 percent of millennials want to use their skills to
help a cause.
• This means organizations must do more than
simply draft new values and mission statements,
they should also consider aligning their workspace
around their mission.
Shift to the “cloud” • Virtually every collaboration platform
today has a cloud-based deployment
option. This means that the barrier
to entry is virtually zero.
• Business units no longer need to wait
for corporate approval or the blessing
of IT to make investments in these
areas.
• This is a huge shift inside of
organizations which traditionally had
to rely on IT to deploy any type of
new technology, the costs used to be
high and the deployments
complicated.
Mobility and “Connecting to work”
• Mobility is not just about being able to work
and get access to people and information
from a mobile device.
• It’s also about being a mobile worker which
means you can work from anywhere,
anytime, and on any device.
• The idea of “connecting to work” is become
more prevalent within organizations as they
are starting to allow for more flexible work
environments.
• The notion of having to work 9-5 and
commuting to an office is dead.
How will this affect you
Professionally?
Traditional Work is Dying…
FREELANCING is here
• We’ve seen glimpses of the looming changes
already: freelancers now make up 34%—that's 53
million people—of the U.S. workforce, according
to a 2014 survey by Edelman Berland.
• In the next 20 years, this shift will accelerate in a
major way towards entrepreneurship,
independent contracting, and "peer-to-peer"
work on platforms like TaskRabbit or TopTechJobs.
• There will be major diversification of
entrepreneurship as new platforms like
crowdfunding and relocalized production become
increasingly popular.
Work Will Consist Of Many "Short-Term" Assignments
• A career will be hundreds of short-term assignments spread out over a lifetime.
• By 2040, the job market will consist of part-time assignments, portfolio careers, and
entrepreneurialism.
• Instead of day-in, day-out work consisting of much of the same responsibilities, a "career,
then, will be composed of hundreds of [short-term] assignments spread out over a
lifetime".
• In other words, workers will work on short-term assignments ranging from several days
to multiple years, and will become employees for their own firms.
• As this becomes the norm, the vast majority of job growth in 2040 will come from small
businesses.
There Will Be More Talent Agencies
Looking For The Standard Worker
• In the past, talent agencies were
reserved for performing artists and
athletes, but in the next economy, talent
agencies and headhunting firms will
start to play a bigger role in the lives of
the everyday professionals looking to
further their career.
• It is evident that the profoundly
different nature of jobs and work in the
emerging new economy will require
profoundly different platforms for
organizing work and careers.
Small-Business Growth Will Lead To
A Boost In Wages
• The rise in self-employment will inevitably
increase wages.
• Additionally, as the aging population retires and
with a birthrate below replacement, the labor
supply will decrease, which will also play a role
in boosting wages.
• Just remember, now you are paying for your own
insurance, benefits, PTO, 401k, training, etc.
The New Boss in a Global Economy
• Businesses have the ability to grow insanely fast
these days, going from relative obscurity to viral
status sometimes overnight.
• Managers need the ability to act quickly when it
comes to putting together the perfect team
needed to tackle whatever new challenge is at
hand.
• A leader is going to identify a new project—maybe
it's entering a new line of business or a new part
of the world—and this is going to require a team
with a new skillset.
• Cobbling together the leanest, most experienced
team of people will require not just hiring, but
overseeing a mixture of full-time and freelance
people.
What Will Be Their Traits?
• Finding More Immediate Ways To Communicate
• Managers will need to be far savvier about
how they connect and communicate.
• Collaboration platforms like Yammer, Chatter,
and Slack are starting to make their way into
workplaces as the main form of
communication, replacing email.
• This population of employees think email is
dead!
• That means the boss of the future must
prioritize and be hypersensitive to how they
adapt the technology themselves.
• With employees scattered around the world
and often working remotely, making sure
everyone is on the same page will become
increasingly tricky and important.
A Whole New Way of Hiring
• Managers are starting to be held more
publicly accountable for their hiring
practice and the need to be more
sensitive to diversity in the workplace.
• There is growing responsibility and
accountability managers will have to
their employees in the future.
• We are beginning to see leaders
looking at their employees with the
same lens you might look at a
customer. That requires leaders to
have an empathy in how they view
their team.
The Boss will answer to Everyone…Yay!
• In five years, no one will be able to escape the immediacy and
accountability that social media and online reviews have created for
businesses. How transparent you are is increasingly important.
• The boss of the future must be well adept at leading under a
microscope, taking people's feedback—harsh as it may be—and
responding to it in their stride.
• Transparency will also require bosses to include their
team in big decisions rather than just taking a top-down
approach to leadership. People look at leadership as a
side-by-side relationship or a partnership relationship.
• Managers need to be much better listeners rather than
talkers. They need to be much better servant leaders."
Everyone Is Responsible For Their Own Success
• Your career success relies solely on you.
• Workers will be forced to think constantly about
their next assignment, the skills required for
that assignment, and the education and
credentials required to gain those skills.
• To be successful, individuals will have to be
more entrepreneurial in thinking and planning
their lives, meaning constantly selling
themselves, defining one’s own work, and
educating themselves for future assignments.

In 10 years, it will be gone," "Instead, success will be defined not by rank or seniority but by getting what matters to you personally," • Whether that's the chance to lead a new-product launch or being able to take winters off for snowboarding. • "Companies already want more short-term independent contractors and consultants and fewer traditional employees. • Seniority matters less and less as time goes on, because it's about the past, not the future."
  • 4. So What Will Be The Future Work Trends in the next 20 years?
  • 5. Throw away the briefcase; you’re not going to the OFFICE. You can kiss your BENEFITS goodbye too! Your NEW BOSS won’t look much like your old one. There’s no longer a Corporate Ladder. You may NEVER RETIRE, but’s there’s a World of OPPORTUNITY; IF you figure out a new Path…
  • 6. KEY TRENDS FOR BUSINESS LEADERS • When it comes to the future of work there are a few key trends which business leaders need to pay attention to. • Understanding these trends will allow organizations to better prepare and adapt to the changes which are impacting the way we work.
  • 7. Future Trends Are • Changing behaviors which are being shaped by social media entering the enterprise. • New collaborative techniques and technologies • Flexible Workplaces • Support your Personal Mission • A shift to the “cloud” for your work effort • Mobility and “connecting to work.”
  • 8. Behaviors Shaped by Social Media • We are seeing inside our organizations as it relates to “social” collaboration is being fueled by what is happening on the web. • Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, Foursquare and many others have given rise to more robust and business oriented counterparts such as Jive, Yammer, Chatter, and dozens of others. • The web helps encourage and support new behaviors such as creating communities, being open and transparent, sharing information and ideas, easily being able to find people and information, and collaboration. • These behaviors (and technologies) are now making their way into our organizations and are helping shape the future of work.
  • 9. Workplaces Must Empower Collaboration and Innovation • The millennial generation essentially demands a corporate culture anchored in collaboration. • Recent studies show 82 percent of millennials believe collaboration is the key to innovation and aspire to work in companies that agree. • This means organizations should invest in technology and spaces that encourage and drive collaboration while also enabling the type of work their people need to get done.

New collaborative technologies • New collaborative technologies are dramatically impacting the way we work. • These technologies give us the freedom and flexibility to work from anywhere, anytime. • Being able to find subject matter experts and connect with colleagues (known or unknown) across the globe is now a possibility that didn’t exist. • Hierarchies are being flattened regardless of seniority and information is being opened up instead of being locked down. • Systems are being connected and opportunities for business process improvement, customer experience, and overall efficiency improvement abound.
  • 11. Workplaces must be flexible • When it comes to where and how work gets done, the millennial generation loves freedom of choice. • Able to get work done on laptops, smartphones and tablets, employees are no longer tethered to their desks as they were a decade ago. • Employers need to offer flexible workspaces that allow people to move, change positions and work in different areas throughout the day. • Organizations at the forefront of responding to this demand are introducing “hubs” of flexible office space that can offer up to 10 different types of work settings. • These hubs then allow employees to sit, stand, lean, gain privacy and move around throughout the day as they feel necessary.
  • 12. Companies Must Support Your Mission • The millennial generation believes business should do more than generate profit, it should also change the world. • The 2014 Millennial Impact survey indicates that 97 percent of millennials want to use their skills to help a cause. • This means organizations must do more than simply draft new values and mission statements, they should also consider aligning their workspace around their mission.
  • 13. Shift to the “cloud” • Virtually every collaboration platform today has a cloud-based deployment option. This means that the barrier to entry is virtually zero. • Business units no longer need to wait for corporate approval or the blessing of IT to make investments in these areas. • This is a huge shift inside of organizations which traditionally had to rely on IT to deploy any type of new technology, the costs used to be high and the deployments complicated.
  • 14. Mobility and “Connecting to work” • Mobility is not just about being able to work and get access to people and information from a mobile device. • It’s also about being a mobile worker which means you can work from anywhere, anytime, and on any device. • The idea of “connecting to work” is become more prevalent within organizations as they are starting to allow for more flexible work environments. • The notion of having to work 9-5 and commuting to an office is dead.
  • 15. How will this affect you Professionally?
  • 16. Traditional Work is Dying… FREELANCING is here • We’ve seen glimpses of the looming changes already: freelancers now make up 34%—that's 53 million people—of the U.S. workforce, according to a 2014 survey by Edelman Berland. • In the next 20 years, this shift will accelerate in a major way towards entrepreneurship, independent contracting, and "peer-to-peer" work on platforms like TaskRabbit or TopTechJobs. • There will be major diversification of entrepreneurship as new platforms like crowdfunding and relocalized production become increasingly popular.
  • 17. Work Will Consist Of Many "Short-Term" Assignments • A career will be hundreds of short-term assignments spread out over a lifetime. • By 2040, the job market will consist of part-time assignments, portfolio careers, and entrepreneurialism. • Instead of day-in, day-out work consisting of much of the same responsibilities, a "career, then, will be composed of hundreds of [short-term] assignments spread out over a lifetime". • In other words, workers will work on short-term assignments ranging from several days to multiple years, and will become employees for their own firms. • As this becomes the norm, the vast majority of job growth in 2040 will come from small businesses.
  • 18. There Will Be More Talent Agencies Looking For The Standard Worker • In the past, talent agencies were reserved for performing artists and athletes, but in the next economy, talent agencies and headhunting firms will start to play a bigger role in the lives of the everyday professionals looking to further their career. • It is evident that the profoundly different nature of jobs and work in the emerging new economy will require profoundly different platforms for organizing work and careers.
  • 19. Small-Business Growth Will Lead To A Boost In Wages • The rise in self-employment will inevitably increase wages. • Additionally, as the aging population retires and with a birthrate below replacement, the labor supply will decrease, which will also play a role in boosting wages. • Just remember, now you are paying for your own insurance, benefits, PTO, 401k, training, etc.
  • 20. The New Boss in a Global Economy • Businesses have the ability to grow insanely fast these days, going from relative obscurity to viral status sometimes overnight. • Managers need the ability to act quickly when it comes to putting together the perfect team needed to tackle whatever new challenge is at hand. • A leader is going to identify a new project—maybe it's entering a new line of business or a new part of the world—and this is going to require a team with a new skillset. • Cobbling together the leanest, most experienced team of people will require not just hiring, but overseeing a mixture of full-time and freelance people.
  • 21. What Will Be Their Traits? • Finding More Immediate Ways To Communicate • Managers will need to be far savvier about how they connect and communicate. • Collaboration platforms like Yammer, Chatter, and Slack are starting to make their way into workplaces as the main form of communication, replacing email. • This population of employees think email is dead! • That means the boss of the future must prioritize and be hypersensitive to how they adapt the technology themselves. • With employees scattered around the world and often working remotely, making sure everyone is on the same page will become increasingly tricky and important.
  • 22. A Whole New Way of Hiring • Managers are starting to be held more publicly accountable for their hiring practice and the need to be more sensitive to diversity in the workplace. • There is growing responsibility and accountability managers will have to their employees in the future. • We are beginning to see leaders looking at their employees with the same lens you might look at a customer. That requires leaders to have an empathy in how they view their team.
  • 23. The Boss will answer to Everyone…Yay! • In five years, no one will be able to escape the immediacy and accountability that social media and online reviews have created for businesses. How transparent you are is increasingly important. • The boss of the future must be well adept at leading under a microscope, taking people's feedback—harsh as it may be—and responding to it in their stride. • Transparency will also require bosses to include their team in big decisions rather than just taking a top-down approach to leadership. People look at leadership as a side-by-side relationship or a partnership relationship. • Managers need to be much better listeners rather than talkers. They need to be much better servant leaders."
  • 24. Everyone Is Responsible For Their Own Success • Your career success relies solely on you. • Workers will be forced to think constantly about their next assignment, the skills required for that assignment, and the education and credentials required to gain those skills. • To be successful, individuals will have to be more entrepreneurial in thinking and planning their lives, meaning constantly selling themselves, defining one’s own work, and educating themselves for future assignments.
