The future of work is a phrase that is often batted around boardrooms and stories are pitched by business editors about how the workforce is changing.
It’s a pressing topic, because every business owner and manager wants to be on the cutting edge, to maintain their competitive advantage in the marketplace. The phrase has significant meaning not just for business leaders, though–it also represents a tremendous opportunity for the talented freelancers who will help make the mobile and tech future a part of their lives and livelihoods. Individuals and smaller businesses will set their talents free by participating in the future of work and transforming their business environments.
Today, a talented worker will usually look for a job, and eventually a career, that will make the best use of their skills and abilities. Often, there is a significant trade-off for both the business owner and the employee: The business owner is limited by geography, because they usually only hire people who live in the same town or city. This further limits their business, because after investing much time and training in their employees, they feel that they must give all their business tasks to them, whether they are well-suited to the specific job or not. For the employee, their limitations in the current work world are that they are busy with tasks that may or may not be ideal for their true talents. They were hired for a specific job, but are often asked to perform other tasks, simply because they are already on the payroll. And they are often not able to develop other talents or interests, because so much of their day is taken up by their work responsibilities.
The future of work will change this dynamic entirely. Business owners will hire talented freelancers based on their abilities and not based on their location. They will reap the benefits of working with enthusiastic, skilled, and innovative thinkers who know their craft and are able to apply their talents to your business model. Freelancers will benefit by working on tasks that they are best suited to, and not being limited by time of day or location, as well. They will make their own schedule, complete projects as needed, and not be bound by the old paradigm of trudging to the office each day.
