The way we work

The first blog entry of 2020 is all about the way we work. As we hurtle into a new decade, it might feel like everything around us is changing and the world of work is no exception. Global trends such as robotics and artificial intelligence look set to turn the way we work on its head with 18% of jobs at eventual risk of automation in Germany. In the more immediate future, the workforce is already undergoing transformation as ever-increasing numbers look for flexible working time, the option to work part time or to be self-employed. The recent Statista Trend Compass found that 79% of executives expected contingent and freelance workers to substantially replace full-time employees in the coming years.
