A Global Look At The Future of Work | The Aristocracy of HR

A Global Look At The Future of Work | The Aristocracy of HR | Web 2.0 et société | Scoop.it

One thing is for sure: we will have to rethink the role of work and rewarding work sooner than later. And it will be tough, but it may also create new opportunities.

BeerBergman's insight:

"HR will have to transform more rapidly in the next 10 years than it has the past thirty to keep up with societal and technological advances should Ms. Popcorn’s predictions hold true. Will there be whole HR departments run by robots in 2025? I don’t think so, but do I believe that we will see more and more outsourcing of functions that are better delivered by technology or people specifically dedicated to that one function? Yes.  As far as the talent goes, we are all reported to be free agents by 2025 and solely responsible for marketing ourselves to companies for work. The idea that there are no more defined roles within an organization filled with professionals with a finite set of skills creates complexities for recruitment teams and every other facet of HR as we know it today."

Why Uber must be stopped

Why Uber must be stopped | Web 2.0 et société | Scoop.it
The touted start-up is proving to be the embodiment of unrestrained hyper-capitalism. What happens when it wins?
BeerBergman's insight:

Now that a federal judge in Germany prohibited Uber to exercice in their country, the #digiwar as it is called by some, is back on stage. What do we think about its operating ways and how do we relate to labor and rights, is an important question to be addressed. Ecxerpt.

***

"So here’s what’s going to happen. Society is going to realize that power as great as Uber’s needs to be checked. Uber, by virtue of its own success, will demonstrate where the lines need to be drawn for the general good. When Uber is the only game in town, the necessity for comprehensive requirements for commercial insurance and background checks will be obvious. When Uber starts using its logistics clout and unlimited investment capital to go after UPS and Hertz and FedEx, regulators will start wondering about antitrust issues.

It’s probably too soon to cry out “Break up Uber.” The company hasn’t won yet. But the smart money is on Uber (by definition, if you consider Google and Goldman Sachs, two prominent Uber investors, to be “smart”). When we allow capitalism to play out without rules, and learn anew how labor gets exploited under that scenario, we may recall why we had rules in the first place.

The Future of Work - YouTube

On March 19, 2014, the Open Society Foundations hosted "The End of Jobs as We Know Them? Technology, Society, and the Future of Work." This half-day convenin...
BeerBergman's insight:

Very interesting video on the future of work. "“Hope is not a strategy by itself. Neither is nostalgia.” @saket_soni on future of work at @OpenSociety http://bit.ly/1lVpme2  "

***

I particularly liked the last intervention, about how we talk about work in specific (negative) terms, without thinking in terms of passion, épanouissement, work as in structuring your life, and not only as "money, access to, ...(fill in the blanks)".

Facebook is making 'Facebook at Work,' so you can Facebook at work

Facebook is making 'Facebook at Work,' so you can Facebook at work | Web 2.0 et société | Scoop.it
You already Facebook at work, so here's "Facebook at Work."
BeerBergman's insight:

The end of a nightmare for many of us? Or just a collaborative platform "en plus" and the current war for one person/one profile that will continue? Or sharing professional data with Facebook and a new nightmare for some others? Must read. Excerpt.

***

"The company's new, enterprise-focused product will be similar to the functionality of its current site, with a newsfeed, groups and messaging capability. However, it will also include collaborative tools for work on shared documents. Facebook at Work will be entirely separate from personal accounts, with no information from a user's social profile appearing on his or her professional page, and vice versa."

Vers la fin du salariat traditionnel ?

Vers la fin du salariat traditionnel ? | Web 2.0 et société | Scoop.it
Il se passe un truc intéressant autour de moi : de plus en plus de mes connaissances quittent un emploi plutôt tranquille pour se lancer en indépendants. On ne ...
BeerBergman's insight:

Peut-être un peu dans la marge de mon sujet, mais en même temps, il s'agit d'une tendance hautement influencée par les technologies. Et puis, hautement tendance dans ce monde, avec d'un côté les indépendants qui arrivent à en vivre, et de l'autre côté le "précariat", pour citer le livre de Guy Standing. Extrait.

***

"Cette tendance est fascinante, parce qu’elle montre les premières brèches dans un modèle monolithique hérité de la seconde révolution industrielle. Elle est d’autant plus fascinante qu’elle vient d’une génération que l’on voit plus proche du modèle de ses parents que de la flexibilité : emploi à vie, idéal de la fonction publique, et nostalgie du plein emploi.

Elle montre également, et c’est peut-être le plus fascinant, une acceptation du changement par les entreprises traditionnelles, comme une manière de s’adapter à la crise économique dans laquelle nous sommes depuis 6 ans. Avec en ligne de mire la fin du salariat traditionnel ?"
