2017 predictions for web design technology trends – Envato

2017 predictions for web design technology trends – Envato | Professional Communication | Scoop.it
When I worked as a web designer, I was fascinated by how design trends changed each year. Since hanging up my design boots and focusing on being CEO of Envato, my focus has shifted from visual trends, to industry and technology ones. As I did in 2014 and 2015, here’s my take on where the world is moving!...

[PDF] Millennial Carreers: 2020 vision

[PDF] Millennial Carreers: 2020 vision | Professional Communication | Scoop.it

By 2020 Millennials will make up over a third of the global workforce. That’s one reason so many reports about them exist. Some say they are disloyal, self-absorbed and lazy, while others claim they’re a generation of digital entrepreneurs and innovators. Some aim to dispel the myths others have created. Just type “Millennials are...” into a Google search  to see the stereotypes.

This is not just another Millennial report. This report presents new findings with fresh insights  from the perspective of both employers and employees. As world of work experts, we have nearly 30,000 employees advising 400,000 clients on hiring decisions and talent development every year. We find work for 3.4 million people—about half of whom are Millennials.

We carried out quantitative research across 25 countries surveying 19,000 Millennials, including 8,000 ManpowerGroup associate employees and more than 1,500 of our own hiring managers. We asked what they look for in a job, what development opportunities they seek and what would make them stay with an employer. We wanted to understand how different they are or aren’t from the rest of the workforce and from generations before them. We wanted to ensure that the sample represented all working Millennials; not just the top percent of tech-savvy earners, but also the graduates and non-graduates across all industries, income and education levels.

Top 17 Tech Trends For 2017

Top 17 Tech Trends For 2017 | Professional Communication | Scoop.it
As we look to 2017, we see several common themes emerging: the impacts of major votes, the evolution of “smart,” and the long-awaited emergence of much buzzed about technologies. Understanding the impacts of major political votes will be essential to reducing uncertainty, so we have taken a look at these scenarios, as well as the continuation of these political movements. We also look at the changing nature of AI, IoT and smart devices—from the personal assistant interfaces that will increasingly act as the conduit between us and the digital world, to smart devices becoming so integrated in our businesses and lives that they become a commodity, and, finally, the emergence of sentient tools that move us beyond rote automation to context-aware tools. Lastly, we look at the implications of many buzzed about technologies taking off—autonomous vehicles, space flight accessibility, drones, and robotic societies.
