Digitizing and robotising derail our current way of working. We will eventually lose 80% of today’s jobs. Of course new, different, jobs will arise but not in the current quantity; ‘we’ are not essential anymore, ‘we’ make place for the automatic. We’re heading towards the 3-day workweek with ‘intellectual challenging and less monotone’ work. What will that mean for us?
We’ll work more in processes because we’re only at work half the time.
We’ll have less repetitive work, offices are no longer ‘type-factories’; this, combined with the first point, creates the need for places to exchange knowlegde, information and procesinformation, instead of cubicle-offices.
We’ll increasingly work with result-contracts instead of counting the hours; after all, the ‘repetitive’ disappears and employees become enterpreneurs, the average size of organisations will be even smaller.
We’ll have more spare time; entertainment, sports, voluntary work and other leisure activities will take an important place, also on the workfloor.
All of this will lead to our jobs becoming more and more of an extension of our personality, an increase in the quality of our lifes and more happiness for all of us. To achieve this, ODER is investing ‘hands-on’ in all aspects of the working environment; from developing and operating to brokering and upgrading. But preferably in what disrupts this existing structure. As long as it is about the new way of working, however that may look.
