Do you know how your employees are
thinking about the future?
A recent Gartner survey reveals 91% of HR leaders surveyed are concerned about employee turnover in the immediate future. The concerns are warranted. Another survey of 1,609 candidates between May and June 2021, revealed that nearly half of half of applicants are considering at least two job offers simultaneously. This much is clear, The Great Resignation and The Talent War will be with us for some time to come and the need to engage employees in meaningful conversations that offers them a vision of the future that aligns with their goals and values has never been more critical for retaining talent.
Today, nothing is more important than preparing employees for digital distruption and the next few years of volatility in business. Tech 2025 has been doing this since 2017.
The Next 3 Years… is a new, twice-weekly interactive newsletter (published and moderated by Tech 2025) that offers companies a powerful tool and touchpoint for engaging employees in meaningful discourse and learning on emerging technology innovations, forecasts and disruptions through the year 2025. While most futurist organizations focus on the distant future (ten or more years into the future), we have always focused on the near-future (the highly consequential years leading up to the year 2025). Most newsletters share news and information. We do this and guide subscribers on how to act on that info and strategize a roadmap to 2025. This is the only newsletter specifically for employees that focuses on helping them to anticipate the future and find opportunities to problem-solve and participate actively in innovation — to become pragmatic, proactive futurists.
Thanks to the pandemic, the world is now experiencing such an exponential acceleration of technological innovation that experts believe the next three years of innovation will substantively define the next thirty years of life for humanity. It is easy to see why many employees are overwhelmed by what’s coming. According to a recent McKinsey study, nearly half of all employees surveyed say lack of clarity and uncertainty about post-pandemic work is causing them concern or anxiety about the future.
The Next 3 Years… helps employees to make sense of the mind-blowing technological advancements coming and provides them with the analysis and context for them to “connect the dots,” learn how it all applies to their work now, creatively envision alternate futures, and strategize their upskilling and career-path moving forward. The goal is to empower employees to explore opportunities to innovate, to gently challenge their current thinking, to exercise their creativity, and to realize their future potential. polls, contests, quizzes, open Q&As, and discussion threads, management gains valuable insights into how employees are thinking about emerging technologies and the future which can help them understand what employees what and need.
