Study: Half of Today’s Occupations Won’t Exist in 2025
According to a CBRE study called Fast Forward 2030: The Future of Work and the Workplace, emerging trends in the workplace point to a revolution in the way workplaces operate in the next 15 years.
“The ability to attract and retain top talent will be the top competitive advantage for businesses in 2030, followed by innovation, adaptability, and technology adoption. The design and organization of the new workplace will be the key to achieving this,” Bert Hesselink, operations director & head of workplace strategies at CBRE, said in a press release.
Young people interviewed for the report clearly indicated that the workplaces of 2030 will contrast starkly to the workplaces of today and will offer a wide variety of quiet retreat and collaborative settings, each ideal for a specific kind of job or task, or designed to suit a specific personal work style.
