Questions that never desist to amaze everyone are “What’s new?” and “What does the future look like?” The world of work and jobs is changing. The world is visualizing the future of work by predicting what can happen and what not. While only time will tell the accuracy of those predictions!
From ‘job’ as we know it to meaningful & sincere work
According to the global data from the population of about 7 billion, 3.5 billion falls under the demography of workforce population. Out of which 60% lies within the informal sector. Considering the predictions drastic changes can be seen in coming years .
Approximately 20 – 30% of the working age population globally will be occupied in independent work aka “gig economy”. This evolution is visible in mature economies like the United States and Europe, as a significant part of the working-age population prefers to set off in project based mode.
The traditional 9 to 5 office jobs are dying and offices will be more of discussing and meeting areas rather than monotonous work space.
If we take a look from our precious “IT sector”.
The four vital grouping of jobs that existed traditionally in the IT sector were:
Designing, Coding, Integration & Testing.
Present-day, the coding and testing part is varied to project based roles and outsourcing business respectively.
For one of our prestigious clients in space, 30 to 40% of this work is operated through “gig projects”. The remaining in-house job left is designing and integration. Same is applied for various other job types.
This impulsion on the acceptance of independent workforce is growing through digital platforms like freelancers, upworks, etc. which are creating great opportunities for freelancers and buyers to connect.
