A new Forbes column highlights the evolving workplace and introduces some key terms and concepts we should all be familiar with:

  • Automation
  • Learnability
  • Multigenerational workforces
  • Remote work
  • The collaboration shift

“About a decade ago, the average knowledge worker would start their workday by opening their email client and a word processor or spreadsheet. As digital work increased and teams expanded, the severe limitations of these tools as facilitators for collaboration ushered the rise of a host of solutions aimed at centralizing work, and conversations around work, into a single system of record,” said author Patricia DuChene, VP and General Sales Manager, EMEA at Wrike.

“The pace of technological change is disrupting entire industries and it will be fascinating to watch how this change continues to unfold and manifest itself in workplace profiles.”
