Miami Beach, Florida: March 2, 2020, The Talent Transformation Guild released today its 2020 World of Work survey report which reveals that C-suite and HR executives are not aligned on major issues such as automation, Ai and talent development.

The new survey report reveals a host of facts about the changes you can expect at work during the forthcoming year. It looks at C-Suite, HR, and L&D executives' attitudes to issues such as AI, automation, talent management and acquisition, diversity and more.

Explained Guild co-founder Martin Belton, "The report was compiled to give us a 'state-of-play' understanding of the key issues involved in the new world of work at the start of 2020. Surprisingly perhaps it revealed more detail than we at first imagined. Probably the biggest shock was the size of the disconnect we found between senior HR staff and their non-HR C-Suite counterparts. Their were considerable differences in their views on a wide range of topics but most notably on their attitudes to the future use of innovative technologies such as robotics and artificial intelligence (AI)."

The 20-page report is now available to download for free here. It is the first of a range of research and reports that the Guild will be commissioning as part of its remit, on behalf of its members.

About the Future of Work

According to the World Economic Forum, new and emerging technologies are affecting our lives in ways that indicate we are at the beginning of a Fourth Industrial Revolution. This new era will build and extend the impact of digitization in new and unimaginable ways. The Fourth Industrial Revolution can be described as the advent of “cyber-physical systems” involving new capabilities for people and machines. This will see new ways for technology to become embedded within societies and even our bodies.

With process automation, robotic automation, the internet of things the nature of work will change. Some analysts predict that more than 40% of tasks currently performed by humans will be delegated to machines. This does not mean that 40% of people will be put out of work but it does mean that most workers will have to upskill. HR experts are predicting this will dramatically change the landscape of our workforce.
