Workplace of the future - scenarios and trends - Views of a global citizen

In today's world of increased globalization, "change" seems to be the only constant variable. Marked by recent shifts in socio- political environments complemented by advances made in technology have resulted in an increased interdependence between countries and people. Since we will all be living and working in a future world that promises to be different from today in significant ways, the future of the global workplace is of interest for governments, businesses, organizations, and people, including multinationals especially threatened by the ambitious forces of local, national and regional players. Key trends will be highlighted and solutions proposed for issues that might be faced in the work place of tomorrow.

Andrew Kruseman Aretz, Partner, Human Resource Services, PricewaterhouseCoopers Belastingadviseurs N.V.
Changing demographics of people flows around the World


Organisations are 'going global' in new ways and expanding to new locations, offering considerable benefits for the organisation. These bring a new set of employment opportunities and problems. The traditional arguments for offshoring to new locations have often been built around cost arbitrage, taking advantage of lower labour and related costs in manufacturing or routine service provision. Recent studies show that the 'new' locations can offer access to skilled and innovative pools of talent, and to different approaches to leadership and management. The motivation of mobile workers is also changing as employees place different value on working internationally. The discussion examines these changing workforce challenges and how organisations are revising policies to meet these new needs.

Jean-Claude Knebeler, Director of Foreign Trade, Ministry of the Economy and Foreign Trade, Luxembourg
Does off-shoring hold the key to success, especially for SME's?

Off-shoring is to most European politicians what garlic is to vampires: the mere mention of it sends them into convulsions. It is associated in public opinion to serious ills ranging from wage dumping and precarious social security networks to child-labour and slavery. Governments in mature economies face a dilemma: they need to foster the competitiveness of their companies while working to preserve certain social standards, at home and abroad. Moving business processes abroad may increase competitiveness but creates social problems. But isn't there a middle way? Must off-shoring/outsourcing necessarily be a zero-sum game? Or does it hold the key to success, especially for SME's, on tomorrow's ever more competitive global marketplace?
