Gartner predicts that 2024 will bring a new wave of challenges and opportunities for the future of work. The analyst warns that organisations will face unprecedented uncertainty with global talent shortages, controlling rising costs and measuring risky technology’s productivity returns — and will need to tackle 2024’s nine trends to set and achieve strategic workforce and technology goals.
Senior director analyst in the Gartner HR practice, Emily Rose McRae dives into the latest insights on crucial future of work trends for 2024 — from transformative four-day workweeks to strategies for climate change protection, breaking the paper ceiling, and navigating the impact of generative AI.
She looks into diversity, equality and inclusion and why conflict management skills are needed now more than ever.
One of the interesting topics she covers here is the issue of breaking the “paper ceiling” barrier for employees who are good at what they do but may not have an educational degree or certification in that area to meet standard qualifier conditions.
