Resetting the Future of Work Agenda: Disruption and Renewal in a Post-COVID World | World Economic Forum with Mercer

HR Effectiveness

The pandemic continues to alter how and where we work, the ways in which work, workplaces, and workforces are organized, and the employee-employer relationship. As organizations reset their future of work agendas, this 31-page report provides five imperatives for doing. 1) Transform organization design and work design. Transition into a more simple and agile structure. 2) Align new technology and skills. Embrace the necessary integration of technology and skills to transform the workplace. 3) Cultivate health and well-being. Support employees with targeted programs for physical, social, financial, and mental well-being. 4) Build a human-centric leadership culture. Adopt a people-focused approach when connecting with workers. 5) Embrace stakeholder capitalism. Ensure equitable sharing of risks and rewards between employees and firms. HR organizations can use this framework to “reimagine how work, the workplace, and the workforce will look in the medium to long term to begin making the necessary adjustments and investments today.”
