Predicting how surprising future scenarios might impact a worker’s needs

Predicting how surprising future scenarios might impact a worker’s needs | Peer2Politics | Scoop.it

While we cannot fully predict the future, we can imagine it and prepare. When we think about the future it is natural to think about events that are a continuation of today; these are the probable futures. But surprising futures, initiated by unforeseen events, are also possible and as such are worth our consideration.  In this piece we explore the implications of several alternative futures on the workplace and the workforce. In order to center our examination on people—who together create organizations—we apply Maslow’s Hierarchy of Needs as our evaluative criteria. Through the lens of human needs and aspirations, we examine the impact of various possible realities on the future of work.

Daniel Egger's curator insight, February 21, 2015 3:17 PM

The main implications lie in the way of how our day-by-day life is organized. With the listed changes affecting the work structure, we lead with an increasing flexibility and uncertainty in income. Our consumption patterns as well the fix costs however have to change, new financial solutions created.  Beside those increasing uncertainties in the workforce, living patterns, family structures, romantic relationships, and perception of success will dramatically challenge  our emotional balance affecting directly our well-being

Ron McIntyre's curator insight, March 7, 2015 8:57 AM

Some very interesting concepts presented here. How do you think they could affect the workplace?

Tessa Dagnely's curator insight, March 8, 2015 8:24 AM

Nous sommes tous concernés par tout ce que le futur nous réserve, ce que  nous aurons prévu et préparé et ce qui nous échappera.
