Everyone wishes they could look into the future and see what the world will be like ten to twenty years. Unfortunately, that isn’t possible. In terms of work, however, there is one thing we do know about the future, and it is that the majority of jobs will look entirely different. Technological advances like AI have allowed companies to implement new processes and strategies that have drastically changed the structure of their workforce. Likewise, agile systems have led to the transformation of processes and the landscapes of companies as a whole.

 

When thinking about the future, members of HR teams and company executives need to be prepared to hire talent for jobs they have never seen before. To be successful in hiring for the future, they will need the best tools and technology available. 

 

What Will The Jobs of the Future Look Like?

There is no way to know exactly what the jobs of the future will look like. Based on current trends, however, we do know that future jobs outside of service-based industries will be heavily technology-based and in a constant state of evolution. Unlike current positions in which coders and other highly skilled workers perform manual entries to make technology work to our advantage, the future will require people with more of a tech-management mindset and a myriad of skills. Regardless of what the future jobs look like, they will require the top talent available on the market. 

Beyond the type of jobs that will be available, there will also be a change in the structure of the workplace. Currently, companies are pushing towards a more contractual and project-based approach to hiring that is not expected to slow down any time soon. 

 

How Can HR Prepare For Hiring In The Future?

To best prepare for the jobs of the future, hiring managers will need to dismiss past methods of hiring and applications and embrace a new, innovative approach. 

 

Here are a few important factors HR departments should consider when thinking about hiring for future jobs:

 

  • The most talented employees won’t be actively looking for jobs.

The jobs of the future will require the top talent available on the market. As passive candidates, the most talented workers are not actively looking for jobs or searching job boards. Therefore, HR departments and recruiters will need to take their jobs directly to passive candidates by posting the openings to social media and internet ads.

 

  • The employees of the future won’t have time to fill out lengthy applications.

Human attention spans are currently lower than ever. In the future, they are expected to decline even more. Short attention spans coupled with long to-do lists of talented employees eliminates the likelihood that they will take the time to fill out a traditional application.

 

  • More contractual jobs mean companies will need to hire more often.

As contractual jobs become the preference of most employers, they will need to hire talent more often, creating an increased workload for HR departments. With an increased workload, HR professionals will have less time to process applications using traditional methods and need technology that makes their jobs more efficient.
