This is the fourth article in this blog series exploring Technology Vision 2017. In this year’s Technology Vision, the five identified trends underscore the importance of focusing on ‘Technology for People’ to achieve digital success.
This video explores our third Technology Vision 2017 trend, Workforce Market Place. The digital era is breaking the industrial era models of how companies should do business. Driven by a surge of on-demand labour platforms and online work management solutions, legacy models and hierarchies are being dissolved and replaced with talent marketplaces.
Creating talent marketplaces within organisations will unleash the power of people. With the management of work going online and on-demand labour matchmaking capabilities spinning up at a ground breaking pace, companies that expand from innovating products and services to innovating people can blaze the path to the People First economy.
Working toward a corporate marketplace model, where companies are designed for people, can drive unprecedented business speed and agility. Those who invest in people innovation today will unleash human potential and creativity, and by evolving their corporate structures, fill in a missing piece in the digital revolution.
Next week we'll be discussing Trend 4: 'Designing for Humans', a trend emphasising that the new frontier of digital experiences is technology designed and adapted specifically for individual human behaviour.
