Employment Landscape of the Future
The future of employment seems to be marked with two important factors – freelance economy and increased automation, provided through Internet of Things (IoT).
It is estimated that by 2020 anywhere between 35 and 50% of the US workforce will be composed of freelancers, either full-time or at least doing a freelance job on the side. The situation in Europe is not much different with freelance professionals already making up to 25% of all those working in professional, scientific and technical work and 22% of all those in arts and entertainment. At the same time, the IoT sector is growing as well. Various estimates claim there will be between 20-50 billion connected devices by 2020. The internet is entering our lives in new ways.
So where do these two areas overlap?
The future of IoT is one of individual projects done in large part by freelancers. Workers are increasingly rejecting traditional employment with its lack of personal control and repression of creativity. The focus of workers is shifting from having a job to working for clients.
The hallmark of successful companies engaged in IoT becomes the ability to find the best individual experts that will help realize company’s ongoing projects and provide the best solutions for any problem encountered in a project.
Where does a project manager find those top-notch professionals?
An Austrian company seems to be working on the solution.
