Top 5 TED Talks About the Future of Work and the Global Workforce

category: business growth, Company Culture, global workforce

We live in the era of the gig economy, which is a labor market characterized by the prevalence of short-term contracts or freelance work as opposed to permanent jobs.

Chances are, you know someone who makes money through companies like Airbnb, Lyft, Etsy, Upwork and so on. Companies like these have reshaped the way the mainstream views work. When, how, where, and why can now be flexible aspects of how work gets done. People choose lifestyle and culture fits over paychecks and job security, because it's getting ever easier to find professional meaning and purpose without sacrificing work life balance.

On top of this, access to talent has reached an all time high as platforms like LinkedIn make poaching a company’s best employees easier for recruiters and competitors. So, it's no surprise that companies all over the world are making significant investments in the employee experience with goals to make employees more engaged, productive, and happier by rethinking their physical, digital, and cultural environments.

As I write this, the global business community is in the midst of reshaping what it means to be an employee as well as what it means to work. This in due, in large part, to technology. Entire organizations can now be built without employees being physically present in the same office.

Below, I present 5 TED Talks that examine the future of work and the global workforce.

While working as part of a remote team gives you freedom in terms of where and when you tackle your tasks, the potential lack of group communication due to clashing time zones and the nature of remote work can make achieving any meaningful progress painfully slow.

The following guest post comes from Micah Mador, Engagement Manager at the Foundry Group:

After two and a half years of seeing various team members come and go, I’ve learned that the most important aspect of remote collaboration is the ability to work out loud.

What does “work out loud” mean, you ask?

For starters, it doesn’t literally mean speaking your work out loud. 

In this article, I’ll pick apart what your distributed team needs to do to communicate effectively by breaking down the components of working “out loud” and explain in detail why you need to be doing just that.

Examples of Company Culture: How to Support Leadership Development Within Your Business

The best leaders aren't always the ones you expect!

After all my years of managing people and running operations, there are still those employees who surprise me. I call them hidden gems.

These are the employees who join the team with the expectation that they will only do what is expected of them: come to work on time, complete their task, mingle with the team, and go home. They typically stay with the company for 2 to 3 years before they get an itch to do something different at another company.

But sometimes...there's a moment of surprise (for me) when they are given a challenge that causes them to truly step up and show what they are made of.

That's when they start to shine.

Read on to discover how to find your next leader right under your nose, and enjoy a few examples of company culture along with a story about a Prialto employee who has recently stepped up to become a mentor within our company.
