SUMMARY

The coronavirus pandemic has forced many to opt for remote work. This report about flexible work and the future of work reveals that automation will represent between 20 to 30 % of jobs obsolete over the next decade but the large majority of companies are not ready for this change.

With regards to talent management, increased flexibility at work, the skill to design your job, open and ongoing feedback as well as diverse career models are among the main trends observed in the market. The paper notes that nearly half of respondents believe that people will be working for several employers shortly. It is HR's role to efficiently manage this career scenario.

As for the compensation and benefits, incentives like remote working and flexible working hours will become important, as well as a change from individual to team performance bonuses. It is expected that bonuses will become also less important in the financial sector.

Global mobility will also gain traction, specifically for large corporations. Another key trend highlighted in this document is that there will be more cross-border commuters, living and working in different countries. A quick emergence of employee mobility among different companies has also been observed as firms have already started to exchange talent temporality.

HR is expected to become completely digital, also in the way big data is used to understand the workforce, equip employees with digital skills and to develop new business models. Finally, creating a strong company culture will become a key element to engage and retain workers, the study concludes.
