A recent report set out by the UK Commission for Employment and Skills (UKCES) has suggested that flexible work forces will be commonplace by 2030.
As our population is living longer and with the changing economic times, there will be more older workers, aged 70 and above who will still be contributing, albeit in a flexible pattern. More working mums will increase with the shift in society and financial pressures which will mean more parents having to work.
Technology is beginning to and will have a defined impact on workers physically being present in an office to complete their roles. Offices could represent more of a "virtual workplace".
These are just some of the forecasted changes which will have profound implications for employers and especially HR functions and how they will work by 2030. The significant rise in flexible working will be a demand from our evolving multigenerational workforce.
