Interim Management in the future world of work
2018 Research White Paper
The world of work is changing rapidly, driven by the emergence of new technology and changing career patterns. The traditional life trajectory of education followed by one linear career leading to retirement is being challenged. The idea of long term permanent employment is becoming less sustainable as the pace of change within business increases; lifelong learning is crucial, so people are skilled for future roles that may not currently exist, and the number of years people expect to work in their lives grows.
To successfully exploit opportunities, businesses need to adapt to a flexible, nimble mindset where skills are provided and procured when needed.
