Work From Home Newsletter: Edition 7

Work From Home Newsletter7

In the latest work from home news is the future of jobs, a new AI course, and creating a better experience for remote workers through both, technology and legislation.


Here are 4 remote work predictions for 2019:

  1. Communication will diversify and organizations will bring together multiple tools and technologies, offering them both to in-house workers and remote employees.
  2. In 2019, a number of remote working solutions will come into play even at the centralized office space.
  3. Even as AI continues to make deeper inroads into the way we work and communicate with each other, remote workers will be managed and monitored by AI-driven platforms.
  4. Augmented and virtual reality will help transform how projects are envisioned, planned, and prototyped – given its life-like simulation capabilities.

The workforce of the future will be almost unrecognizable. If your job can be replaced by AI, it will — and you’ll need a new career.

Doctors won’t be spared, as sophisticated robotics will take away some of the surgeons’ operating responsibilities. An older doctor with shaky hands will be dispensed with and replaced by a robot that does not need breaks or sleep.

Reading x-rays to detect cancerous cells and other diseases will be viewed by AI that could spot things much better than the human eye. Driverless vehicles, kiosks in fast food restaurants and self-help quick-phone scans at stores will eliminate minimum wage and low-skilled jobs.

Since people will live to their 90s and beyond, people will be forced to work longer into their late 70s. Many will be healthy enough, but most need the income. You will have many different careers in your lifetime due to the rapid-shifting work landscape.  The gig economy will become the standard for most people.

Those who care for the elderly and seniors in all facets of their lives will greatly benefit. General practitioner and age-related specialist doctors, nurses, financial advisors, hospices, old-age homes, physical therapists and surgical enhancement specialists will thrive as the ageing will be in dire need of their services.

Coders and computer engineers will be the great beneficiary of this trend — until AI can learn to code as well as or better than humans. But AI is not only for engineers.

A brand new course, Andrew Ng’s AI for Everyone is the AI training course for business professionals. Though this course is largely non-technical, engineers can also take this course to learn the business aspects of AI.

Since setting up shop as a content creator on the freelance marketplace Upwork in 2009, Ayman Sarosh, who is also a mom, has been able to work from her home in Islamabad, Pakistan while taking care of her household responsibilities, too.

She’s enjoyed her work so much she’s provided training to her local community in how to freelance – finding that it inspires others to go into business for themselves, too.

It’s still early days, but employers are beginning to roll out programs aimed at helping older workers move into a different phase of their careers without clocking out altogether.

Nearly half of respondents allow their retired employees who are collecting benefits to work as consultants or contingent workers, and that’s expected to reach 60% by 2020.

New Belgian legislation has clarified and improved protection for teleworkers who are the victim of a workplace accident or an accident on the way to work. In spite of the increasing popularity of remote or ‘teleworking’, until recently, Belgian work‑related accident legislation had not been adjusted to reflect this.

A parenting room at coworking space, WeWork, allowed Andi Chatterton to be in two places at once. She could attend meetings and oversee product development with her team while sporadically using the dimly-lit room to breastfeed her newborn.

In the future, employers will be able to monitor our work by seeing how many keystrokes or phone calls we make. Your future world of work might be much more self-directed. Workers will solve problems and change things themselves, which potentially means there is a need for fewer managers and flatter hierarchies.

Do you ever wonder how to create a human workplace in an increasingly freelance, remote, contingent, and gigged-out world? The last surgeon general study found that the biggest health risk is not smoking, second-hand smoke, or even sitting. It’s loneliness and isolation.

Companies need to leverage all that’s great about technology, but also make sure that employees put technology in its “place” to develop real, human connections.

Kristen Brown stressed three key factors for women to build a “personal brand” through experience, exposure and excellence. Every working professional should maintain an updated LinkedIn profile and professional social media presence. Appearance, both online and in public, is vital to maintaining personal presentation she said.
