Talent management: The future of work


The topic ‘Future of Work’ has become a mainstream talking point over the last 5-7 years, principally driven by the rise of artificial intelligence (AI) and its potential impact on the workforce in the not too distant future.

So, what should companies in the industrial gas space (and its ecosystem) be thinking about and planning for with regards to this topic? Let’s take a deeper dive and find out.

Let’s start with a definition of the phrase the ‘Future of work’. Simplistically, it is taking a look at jobs lost, gained and transformed as a result of automation technologies such as artificial intelligence (AI). However, the issue can be (and is) much more complex and interconnected, with areas such as how/where future work will get done (in office/remote/virtual), who will be doing the work (contingent/permanent), what skills will be needed to stay current (education/training level), and what happens to those left behind, just to name a few. For the sake of this article, we’ll focus on the job-specific parts of the topic and its implications for the industry.
