President Of Knobull Reports Research That Projects Workplace Future Trends

By: Knobull
PROVIDENCE, R.I. - May 10, 2023 - PRLog -- Lynn Bentley, President of Knobull reported, "After a review of workplace future data,
it's impossible to reduce everything into a single, elegant theme. So instead, of narrowing it down, what follows are several key takeaways."

1.     Overall hiring is slowing down, and tech is especially hard hit. Companies aren't just laying off people; they're also slow rolling new hires. This increases the requirement to get Career Coaching support, provided by JobStars at the Knobull homepage.

2.     There are bright spots for labor. Healthcare providers are hiring nurses, doctors, and administrators "nonstop, while oil and gas, and manufacturing are hiring aggressively.

3.     Remote jobs are drying up, despite high demand. Only 11% of jobs on LinkedIn are remote, down from 20% in March 2022, yet 50% of all applications on the platform are for remote jobs.

4.     Workers are investing in themselves. Workers are engaging in lifelong learning as a path to career autonomy and competitiveness. Instead  of seeking MBAs or other advanced degrees, career-minded professionals are investing in practical knowledge like that offered by edX on the Knobull homepage.

5.     Skills-based hiring leads to more diverse workforces. There has been an increase in employers highlighting specific skills (project management, say, or experience with JavaScript) instead of college degrees or previous job titles. This leads to a bigger talent pool and allows companies to pull in underrepresented groups and different candidates, including younger candidates.

6.     Artificial intelligence (AI) will disrupt the middle-tier jobs. Unlike previous technological disruptions, which displaced low-skills positions, AI is likely to upend what researchers call the "middle-skills tier." (Think accountants, researchers, and yes, even copywriters.)

Bentley concluded, "What are you doing to address some of the challenges posed by these takeaways? How are you preparing for the jobs of the future? How are you building your capabilities to compete in a skills-based market? Share your thoughts with me by sending me a LinkedIn message"
