The job seekers market will soon be over for many and intensify for others. Whether you are hiring or seeking positions, here is what it takes to be on the right side of the line.
The increased pace of innovations and the convergence of emerging technologies destroy old industries faster than new industries evolve.
In addition, the use of artificial intelligence will motivate managers to create leaner organizations, fill fewer positions with high-potential people, and measure performance and well-being of their chosen few.
Unemployment will rise.
Welcome to ECTASIS – the state of being stretched beyond normal dimensions.
Evaluation. Employers will use big data to measure and report on actual on-the-job performance and employee well-being. Everybody, including managers, will be under the microscope. Underperforming ones will be fired.
Communication. Machines will process and parse more data. But artificial intelligence won’t replace all professionals. Project managers, doctors and lawyers will still need to engage stakeholders and talk to clients.
Team Synergy: People will need to be able to fit in a diverse set of teams with different sets of strengths, personalities and specialisation. They must have a positive impact on team diversity and complementary talents.
Assessment. Artificial Intelligence will match workers with employers. It is also true that hiring managers will rely on extensive search and evaluation methods, such as Kolbe Indexes. High Potential Talent that owns will be ‘acqui-hired.’
Specialisation. Specific and relevant skills and experience will become more important with the automation of repetitive tasks. But big data is usually dumb data. Actionable insights will still come from technoscientific human analysts. At least for a while.
Intelligent Emotions. The ability to sense other people’s emotions, keeping your own disruptive impulses under control, the proficiency in initiating new ideas, and leading people in a new direction will be dominant practical competencies.
Sand dune teams. People will move more frequently from one project to the next. They will be part of multiple teams with varying configurations simultaneously.
