Can you imagine arriving at your office and finding an IBM robot called Watson seated at your desk?
This could happen in HR departments in a not-so-far-off future.
The reality is that IBM is capable of predicting with 95% accuracy when workers are planning on leaving a company. It also suggests actions managers can take when faced with employees at risk of leaving.
Moreover, its artificial intelligence solutions can cover enough positions to reduce the number of workers in HR departments by 30%. Scary, right?

The advent of this technology is shaking things up in all company departments, and changing the way we work.
It is thus not surprising that new positions are emerging and displacing others. In fact, according to this study carried out by the World Economic Forum, 75 million jobs may be displaced, while 133 million new roles may emerge.
But now is the perfect time to get ready for the revolution that is knocking at our doorsteps.
Here we provide you with three key tips to understanding the not-so-far-off future of jobs:
- By 2022, the skills required will have changed so much that no less than 54% of all employees will need training and/or skills reinforcement for positions that don’t even exist today. The following types of skills will be in demand: analytical thinking, innovation, self-directed learning, resilience, flexibility, complex problem-solving, emotional intelligence, etc.
- The way we work as well as the way we hire is changing. It is increasingly more common to turn to the so-called “knowmads”, and in doing so, this creates new ways of attracting talent through flexibility and an emotional salary.
- Your candidate may be anywhere in the world. Talent mobility is a reality, and thanks to technology and digital platforms, geographical barriers and distances are things of the past. The talent you need, just a click away.
