Corporate learning professionals Jeanne C. Meister and Karie Willyerd bravely predict the nature of the workplace in 2020 despite the current white-hot pace of change – or, perhaps, because of it. They base their bold prognostications on two global surveys, one asking 2,200 working professionals what they want from their employers and the other asking 300 employers how they are preparing for the future. The authors also created case studies based on more than 100 interviews with the leaders of innovative organizations, including Cisco, NASA and Deloitte. They learned how progressive firms and their human resources departments plan to recruit, develop and retain top employees. getAbstract recommends this singular glimpse into the future to professionals who manage workforces and workplaces. This faultless book’s revelations are fascinating and, for older workers, utterly unnerving. (As they prepare to take the stage, Millennials will love it.) Are you audacious enough for the new world? Brace yourself.
In this summary, you will learn
- How the workplace will function in 2020,
- How it will differ from today’s office and
- How companies can prepare for the change ahead.
