This IDC Perspective reviews the challenges that organizations face as they transition to the new work experience and presents a framework for addressing those challenges. As organizations accelerate and expand digital transformation (DX) initiatives, traditional work models aren't nimble enough and adaptive nor scalable. Human workers are increasingly operating side by side with "digital coworkers," enabling human workers to focus on higher-value activities. The future of work is about the rise of humanism as the new driver of value — with skills such as imagination, creativity, and empathy gaining prominence. This requires entirely new work environments, organizational structures, and metrics for success.
"The future of work isn't really about the future — it is about initiatives that companies need to pursue now," says Holly Muscolino, research VP, Content and Process Strategies and the Future of Work at IDC. "IDC believes that organizations that embrace these technological and organizational changes and cultivate an agile, dynamic worker experience and work environment will gain a competitive edge."
