I, and others on Blogging4Jobs, have written about the future of work and adapting to the needs of future workers. I have also written about the contractor or Freelancer economy and how a large portion of the Millennial generation will be working in very flexible work arrangements. The company Uber has provided one example. Now a company called TaskRabbit is providing another.
The 2014 SHRM national conference kicked off today with huge attendance and more non-US representatives than ever before. Hank Jackson talked about a new direction and new things HR must attend to in the future. I as happy to hear about the future stuff because that is what I write about on Future Friday.
