Work From Anywhere Newsletter: Edition 5

Artificial Intelligence

Here’s your new Work From Anywhere Newsletter

In this edition of the Work From Anywhere Newsletter, the conversation in Davos is all about Artificial Intelligence (AI), the Future of Work, and the reskilling of millions of workers that will be required to navigate the Fourth Industrial Revolution.

THE LATEST WORK-FROM-ANYWHERE TRENDS

Research on coworking spaces show that these shared, member-based workspaces where remote corporate workers, startup employees, freelancers, and others “work alone together” can substantially reduce the isolation and loneliness associated with remote work.

Independent workers should also consider coworking. They often benefit even more than company employees from the social aspects of coworking and find that the professional networking opportunities help to generate new business. Read more.

The conversation in Davos is all about the future of work for humans in the age of artificial intelligence (AI). AI will require reskilling millions of workers and will significantly shape the future of work. Read more.

The rapid proliferation of automation technologies like AI, robotic process automation (RPA) and robotics are resulting in rapid and significant changes in skill requirements; discounting some skills that have existed for hundreds of years and placing premiums on others. Read more.

As artificial intelligence becomes both more useful and more widespread, workers everywhere are becoming anxious about how a new age of automation might affect their career prospects. Future-proofing your career is less about picking a safe job and more about constantly updating your skills throughout your career. Read more.

In the last 25 years, how we work has changed radically. The mobile phone has probably been responsible for making us all hyper-connected and that, in turn, has made talent boundary-less. The world is now the marketplace for talent. Career 3.0 will be about the bulk of the workforce becoming gig workers and operating outside the payroll of an employer.

This workforce will come to the marketplace with multiple skills and offer it to multiple buyers and paid at different rates depending on the level of proficiency. This model will allow people to bring in all their skills, education and hobbies to the marketplace and monetise it. Read more.

The gig economy has many positive aspects and it also has negative aspects. As we move into this future of work, which is coming because of technology, we have to understand that this relationship between employer and employee is going to change, particularly in the informal sector. We must recognise this especially for countries like India, where 93% of all our workers are in the informal sector. Read more.

Employees will move away from being skill-focused. Workplace skills that were once valuable, such as fluency in a specific digital platform, will soon become irrelevant. Instead, the core principles that make one a professional in their field will carry increased weight. In the new workplace, there will be no need for paper-pushing employees. The workplace of the future will allow for human abilities to truly shine. Read more.

The Nova mobile office pod supports the flexible working needs of the modern nomad with fast wifi, a minibar and a daily changing view. Fully fitted out with fast wifi, a smart television, an Apple TV, a printer, whiteboard, coffee machine, mini-fridge, charging station, power points, a bathroom and running water, the pod can support a handful of digital nomads at a time. Read more.

IBM CEO Ginni Rometty says that as automation continues apace the skills gap and job insecurity fears are real. She wants to see the development of a new education and career model: new collar, not blue collar or white collar.

This means investing in skills development and responding in real time to the changing skills landscape. It also means breaking free from traditional models of recruiting those with 4-year and advanced degrees. Read more.

Linkedin’s Emerging Jobs Report found that AI skills in the workforce grew 190% from 2015 to 2017. Six of the 15 emerging jobs identified in the report are related in some way to AI. Read more.

Work From Anywhere Newsletter: Edition 4

Working From Home

In this edition of your Work From Anywhere Newsletter, flexible working and higher education are in the news. See online education trends, my WFA Course and 2 free events.

WORK-FROM-ANYWHERE TRENDS:

Increasingly, employers see that allowing remote work and empowering mobile employees is good for talent acquisition and retention, morale and productivity. Read more.

According to a Deloitte study, nearly 75 per cent of Millennials believe that a “work from home” or “work remotely” policy is important. Time to get that home office ready.

Flexible working helps more people access the labour market and stay in work, as more people are increasingly thinking differently about how, when and where they work. Quality flexible working can help organisations attract talent, improve employee job satisfaction and loyalty, reduce absenteeism and improve well-being. Read more.

97 per cent of companies agree that employee expectations of the workplace seem to be changing rapidly. The main feature of those changing expectations is around flexible working, with 98 per cent of respondents saying employees now expect more flexible working hours, while 89 per cent said they expect agile/home working to be available. Read more.

The future of work will belong to more intricate jobs that require emotional and social finesse over physical effort, and women have always been far advanced in that respect when compared to men. Read more.

“The mission of higher education now is to help students become robot-proof. Every learner now has to be able to interact with machines, learn how to grasp data, and do things that machines can’t, such as being empathetic, creative, and entrepreneurial,” says Joseph Aoun, author of Robot-Proof: Higher Education in the Age of Artificial Intelligence.

New Course Teaches How to Achieve Better Work-Life Balance Without The Nine-To-Five

Work From Anywhere Course

For Immediate Release:

New Course Teaches How to Achieve Better Work-Life Balance Without The Nine-To-Five

11th January 2019; Pune, India: New work-from-anywhere course teaches moms, dads, remote workers and freelancers, legitimate ways to earn good money working from home.

‘Anywhere Worker’ has come to define the new generation of workers who won’t be tied to any one place, the ones who want to experience the work-from-anywhere life.

Today many people are looking for a better work-life balance. They’re tired of the commute and want to choose where they’d like to work from.

An Upwork study revealed that 73% of Gen Zers started freelancing by choice rather than out of necessity. According to hiring managers, the number of people expected to work remotely in the next 10 years is only going to grow.

Studies have also shown that flexible workers work more effectively than those working a traditional ‘nine-to-five’ and benefit from feeling happier and less stressed.

But, unless the organisation you work for is willing to let you work remotely, most people have a hard time making the transition from full-time work to a work-from-home position.

They don’t know how to get started or what types of jobs are available for someone with their skills. Even worse, they don’t know how to tell legitimate work-from-home options from the scams.

Priya Florence Shah, the publisher of Naaree.com, a magazine for Indian women, knows this all too well. When she started working online in 2001, there were far too many scams and very few genuine work-from-home opportunities.

As she built her blogs and digital marketing business over the years, one of the questions she was asked most often was, “How can I work from home?”

In answer to her readers’ questions, she created a work-from-home course and coaching practice. As Ms Shah says, “Thanks to the internet, there is no lack of opportunity or limit to your earnings today. There is only lack of imagination.”

Her course, called, “Work From Anywhere: A Guide to Remote Jobs for Work From Home Moms & Dads, Digital Nomads & Freelancers,” lists over 35 of the best ‘work-from-anywhere’ careers.

All of these remote jobs are completely legitimate and some require very basic skills and no experience. The “always-updated” course also outlines the pros and cons of working remotely and provides a huge list of remote job boards.

Ms Shah also provides a Bonus 1-hour Work-From-Home Strategy Session to those who purchase lifetime access to the course. This coaching session helps students figure out their options, set a goal, and create a strategy to achieve it.

She also offers a Free Work-From-Home Checklist to help find out how prepared you are to start working from home. This checklist contains the basic requirements that a lot of remote jobs require, plus three legitimate work-from-anywhere careers with different skill levels.

The work-from-anywhere course and checklist can be accessed at https://wfacourse.in

Work From Anywhere Newsletter: Edition 3

Work From Anywhere Course

Here’s your new Work From Anywhere Newsletter

THE LATEST WORK-FROM-ANYWHERE TRENDS:

The gig economy is expected to cover 25-30% of the job market by 2022. Over a period of time, there will be more and more full-time gig professionals and organisations will also have 30-40% of their jobs assigned for them.

Some of the top paying gig jobs are in the blockchain, deep learning, ethical hacking, AWS and robotics where the per hour rate is $80-120.

In India, content writing, translations, creative works, recruitment, sales, digital marketing, branding, SW development, architecture, BIM, accounting, data analytics, consulting, counselling, are typical gig jobs.

Want to be a gig worker? Consider these realities before taking the plunge. As a gig worker, you are running a business (which is you) and all the frills attached to business come with it. You are not going to be as free as you think you will.

Your clients are your employers, and as a gig worker, the responsibility of all the areas of business like business development, marketing, managing client, contracts, finance, and so on, solely lies on you. Managing this takes time and upskilling – time away from work that you love doing and getting paid.

A Upwork study revealed that 73% of Gen Zers started freelancing by choice rather than out of necessity. Gen Z is foregoing traditional, corporate roles and freelancing by choice more than any other generation.

In the Upwork survey, 60% of small businesses’ hiring managers said remote work is more commonplace than three years ago. Five times as many hiring managers expect more of their team to work remotely in the next 10 years, and 38% said their full-time, permanent employees will work mostly remotely.

It used to be that people moved to different cities and states based on the availability of jobs and the type of industries that were present in these locations. In the future, this won’t be a huge factor.  As the internet and cloud technology continues to grow location will no longer be an issue.

Remote working will become the norm, which will give people more flexibility to work and live where they please. By 2027, there will be an astonishing 86.5 million freelancers, compared to just 83.4 million non-freelancers.

Already, roughly one in three college graduates are underemployed. The vast majority of jobs, even into 2025, will not require a college education. In fact, since around 2000, jobs have started to become deskilled.

Have you wondered what new job roles the rise of artificial intelligence (AI) and data analytics will throw up in the near future? In a study Cognizant, the IT major listed 21 roles that will emerge in the next 10 years and that will be central to the future of work.  This should serve as a wake-up call for graduates in India who are anyway in dire need for re-skilling.

“We are now in the transitional stage of employers gradually reducing their prejudice in the hiring of those who studied at a distance, and moving in favour of such ‘graduates’ who, in the workplace, demonstrate greater proactiveness, initiative, discipline, collaborativeness – because they studied online.”

Imagine artificially intelligent software that can scan and analyze your online profile. Then imagine it creating a score — a risk rating — that’s searchable by future employers. It’s scary, and now a reality.

Women are disproportionately affected by the automation of jobs and development of artificial intelligence, which could widen the gender gap if more women are not encouraged to enter the fields of science, technology and engineering, the World Economic Forum warned.

The UK government has introduced a package of workplace reforms to protect workers on zero-hour contracts, agency employees or “gig economy” workers. Under the new legislation, staff would have to be told details of their rights from their first day in a job, including eligibility for paid and sick leave. Workers would also be given the right to request more predictable hours.

Flexible workers claim to work more effectively than those working a traditional ‘nine-to-five’ and benefit from feeling happier and less stressed. However, there are drawbacks, which include missing out on their workplace’s social life and feeling lonelier.

In this connected world, all many people need to work is a laptop and a stable internet connection, which can be found in many places other than the office environment.

Great communities and relationships can be built via video conference and companies that understand how to make room for remote workers will continue to attract those that are highly skilled, think organically and oftentimes outside the box and who desire new experiences.
